Man’s desire to fly has reached new heights. 'The final frontier’ is becoming another potential holiday destination for the very wealthy. But for the rest of us, space travel is still something we can only dream about. Blast! traces the journey of one man from dream to reality as his determined efforts to fly take him further than he could ever have imagined.
The World Famous join forces with surreal pranksters Peepolykus to present this mischievous pyrotechnic performance:
““an indication of the increasing sophistication of British outdoor theatre … embracing narrative, emotion and multilayered meaning …Engagingly comic…breathtakingly beautiful…a pleasure to watch”“ - “The Guardian”
Blast! was commissioned by Newark on Water Festival, Out There at Bracknell Festival and Jour de Fete at the De La Warr Pavilion and developed with funding from Arts Council England.
