Inspired by the Grand Spectacle? These luminous painted inflatables and aerial dance against the night sky are created by Studio Festi – an Italian artistic project and production centre known for spectacular shows and grand installations.
This appearance was in 2004 during the Sydney Festival, featuring aerial performance, firedance and illuminated inflatables. Find out more about Studio Festi here: http://www.studiofesti.com/
The poetry characterising Studio Festi’s work is linked to a reinterpretation of traditional city festivals through the invention of stage machines that take inspiration from the Italian Baroque and through the representation of ancient rituals like that of the Italian “parata” (parade).
