Water Fools at Salford Quays
The French outdoor theatre company ILOTOPE put on a spectacular event this weekend at Salford Quays. I was down there to shoot the dress rehearsal which, although brilliantly done, did not have the fireworks going.
It did feature though, a floating car, with a caravan, a huge floating bed, and lots of other magic. At 9.30 prompt a car arrived, dropping a man off on a platform in the middle of the water.
The story is rooted in the fanatical, as a surreal world explodes out of a man’s head, transporting him from the rigmarole of his everyday existence to a landscape populated with mythical creatures and inexplicable magic, while all spectacularly taking place on the water’s surface. Caravans, prams and penny-farthings will feature, defying all logic, bringing an impossibly innovative piece of entertainment to Salford Quays.
Choreographed by French artist Bruno Schnebelin the routine had chain breath-taking visuals, punctuated by pyrotechnics, with engrossing theatre while fellow countryman Phil Spectrum composed an original score to make the show spectacular in all aspects.
