Parklife with NoFit State Circus

Originally titled The Great Outdoor Circus Enquiry, the Parklife project is a large scale creative conversation to explore and develop ideas for large scale outdoor circus performance, new ways of working and new ways of creating extraordinary experiences for our audiences.

In the summer of 2008 we worked with NoFit State Circus on Inside Out Roundabout a large scale piece of community circus for Swindon Summer Festival. This project involved 12 professionals and 50 community performers and developed into Parklife, which was commissioned by the Without Walls consortium of UK arts festivals and had its debut at the Stockton Riverside Festival in August 2009 and a UK tour on 2010.

brightFX worked with the show director to incorporate flame effects and a range of pyrotechnics to increase the impact of the performance and ensure it went off with a bang. Careful selection of the effects and their setup allowed for a suitably impressive finale despite the constraints of a small working area.
