The Umbrella Project by Cirque Bijou

This year Bournemouth Arts by the Sea is welcoming visionary show makers Cirque Bijou and their amazing Umbrella Project and you are invited to be part of it! This moving art installation creates a kaleidoscope of moving lights, illuminating landscapes wherever it goes. Imagine a beautiful sea of colourful, glowing umbrellas creating shapes and patterns and lighting up the local surroundings.

Arts by the Sea are delighted to be working with Cirque Bijou, the producers of this project, who regularly push the boundaries of contemporary circus, street theatre and spectacle. To catch the Umbrella Project at the festival, check the Info Bus in the Town Square for times and precise locations.

Over the Saturday and Sunday of the festival, we are looking for 50 people each night to take part in an Umbrella workshop and procession, where you will get to be part of a fun and mesmerising moving and dancing light installation. Regardless of age or experience, everybody is welcome to join this magical show. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Please note all places are now taken for this event

Sat 14 Oct 17 - Sun 15 Oct 17, Saturday 14th: 20:00. Sunday 15th: 18:40.
