Music of the Spheres Performance
Music of the Spheres performances will open and close Colourscape visit in Finland. Gigantic floating spheres in the River Aura will engulf the performers inside them.
The evening performance during July will feature a huge, transparent sphere floating in the water, carrying carrying flautist Simon Desorgher, who plays a wonderful concerto along the river. With live audio sampling and mixing, the flautist's music will become a full orchestra of flutes, sending waves of sound to the river banks.
The First time in Nordic countries
Colourscape, the largest colour labyrinth in the world, has now arrived to Kupittaa Park, Turku. Arriving from England, this gigantic network of spheres is part of the Turku Capital of Culture programme. During its three-week stay, audiences will get to enjoy an incredible world of colours, music and workshops. Colourscape will open to the public on 23 July, and it will remain open all the way until 14 August from Tuesdays to Sundays.
During the Night of the Arts in August, there will be not one, but two spheres. The magical nocturnal performance will be further intensified by acrobat Claire Crook performing in the second sphere.
