Sefton set to sparkle this weekend as Constellations presents Parabolic Light Cloud
4 years ago
Crosby Coastal Park is set to be lit up with an amazing light constellation and high-octane entertainment to signal the start of Sefton’s build up to the Borough of Culture.
The Borough of Culture (BoC) title is awarded by the Liverpool City Region’s Combined Authority to one of its six local authorities (Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral) on a rotating, annual basis.
To start the build-up to Sefton’s year, a huge light constellation – Parabolic Lightcloud – will be switched on in Crosby Coastal Park on Friday, November 8.
This forms part of a Liverpool City Region arts project designed to inspire local communities to rediscover their local neighbourhoods and spend time stargazing.
On November 8, there will be an evening of activities including local bands, choirs, food-stalls and Spark! Spark! are a street theatre show performed by five to seven characters that combines high-impact drumming, dynamic choreography and beautiful lighting design.
In their installation ‘Parabolic Lightcloud’, Renzo B. Larriviere and Simone Chua (amigo & amigo) use more than 1,000 lights to make something invisible visible: our human emotions.
With different colour combinations, patterns and transitions they show us intense emotions such as love or happiness, but also calmness or sadness. But don’t be fooled, this effect can work just as well the other way around!
On November 8, there will be an evening of activities including local bands, choirs, food and drink stalls and Spark! Spark! are a street theatre show performed by five to seven characters that combines high-impact drumming, dynamic choreography and beautiful lighting design.
The light constellation will be located at the bottom of South Road, Waterloo and will be there all weekend (November 8-10) along with entertainment from 4pm each evening.
The event is free to attend although there are drop off points to welcome any foodbank donations on any day for South Sefton Foodbank. Please consider using public transport to attend as well with Waterloo being the nearest Merseyrail station. Toilets will be available at Crosby Lakeside.
