Imagine Watford 2017 – 2nd Weekend

It was the final weekend of the annual performing arts festival in Watford on the 30th June 2017. Now in its 7th year the crowds certainly came out to view the entertainment the weekend before. It is brought to Watford by the Watford Cultural Leaders Group which comprises of Watford Council, Watford Palace Theatre, the Arts Council England, West Herts College and many more. Below you will see some photographs that I took on the last weekend with many more on the links at the bottom.

Galileo by Deus Ex Machina

The highlight of the weekend was the Galileo a french acrobatic, dance, circus troup. With an amazing performance in torrential rain they wowed the crowds that had turned out in Watford High Street.

The performers are around 30m above the ground telling the story of Galileo who discovered that the earth revolves around the sun instead of the other way around. The articulated structure represents the solar system with the aerial circus, ropes and Chinese poles being used with projections on the buildings.
