A very exciting day! Today was the Fire in The Sky performance at Greenhead park and it is estimated that up to 10,000 people were at the park tonight.
We have been rehearsing at the park all week so the performers were used to being cold but no-one was prepared for the icy stage. Literally it was like an ice rink and concerned for my performers safety I spent the hour before the performance de-icing the stage with people’s donated anti-freeze from the cars. If anyone knows how to de-frost a large stage fast please let me know for future reference!
The piece was performed three times and everyone did really well despite the mud and ice and not having practiced on the stage before.
