Acrobatic & Artistic Angels and More
11.02.2012 - 14.02.2012 30 °C
11th February there was a special show called 'Place des Anges' for the opening of the 2012 Arts Festival.
In this major Festival celebration Angels landed on St Georges Terrace between Council House and St George's Cathedral in a breathtaking display you had to see to believe. Place Des Anges, an aerial performance by French based Les Studios de Cirque, provided a spectacular opening to the 60th Perth International Arts Festival. Place Des Anges blends circus aerobatics with rope rigging techniques allowing performers dressed as angels to float effortlessly high above the ground. More than 1000 kg of feathers were released in the air by the 20 acrobats, who were dangling on ropes at more than 100 meters in the sky. Everybody got covered in feathers, this was a lot of feathered fun !
Besides this we got our dose of 'cultural' events such as the infamous couple "Freak and the Showgirl" with their unforgettable impression of Redemption Song at the Fringe World and some cool rockabilly music at the Devilles Pad Hell's themed bar, loved the dancing !
Not to forget the performance of Little Roy, who performed relaxed reggae tunes and groovier versions of Nirvana songs such as 'Come as you are'.
