Performed by acclaimed French street theatre company Transe Express and ending with a firework flourish by Walk the Plank (creators of Liverpool's Capital of Culture Transition fireworks), this unique spectacle was presented as a celebration of the creation of Southampton's cultural quarter, the future home of Southampton's new arts complex.
This event was presented by The Nuffield in association with Southampton City Council and produced by Zap Art.
