Chung Ling Soo’s Double Dragon Spirit Show

Spectacle Theatre Show, Splendour in the Grass 2006

This massive sideshow takes Festival Art a step further, into the theatre of spectacle and grand illusion. The show is based on the famous Victorian era magician Chung Ling Soo and his traveling magic show. The stage is shaped like a giant cauldron, amidst the smoke, two red dragons majestically rise up to clasp a spinning crystal. This ghostly realm is inhabited by a surrealist performance troupe of beautifully costumed Peking Opera style dancers and circus acrobats that float, disappear and reappear under the phantasmagoric powers of Chung Ling Soo.

Inferno of Patience

Fire Sculpture and Performance direction, Splendour in the Grass, Byron Bay 2005

Fire Sculptures are arguably more memorable than the normal aerial fireworks display. This alternative has been successfully used by Speedways, Arts Festivals, Dance Parties, Weddings and New Years Eve events. The production of a Spectacle Art Fire Sculpture, gave many of theses events an unique edge. Fire Sculptures can be used to celebrate an important occasions, create media publicity or entertain a grandstand crowd between acts. Community Safety Committees have used Spectacle Art of this kind to keep a rowdy crowd in a state of expectation that turns into thoughtful and contemplative awe as the sculpture burns away. Spectacle Art produces professional, safe and reliable Fire Sculptures that with appropriate planning can match the logistic demands of most locations.

The Hand of Glass

Canberra Festival Australia, Hong Kong Arts Festival China, Glastonbury Festival England, 1997 – 2000

The installation was originally commissioned by the Canberra Festival as a public artwork for the civic square fountain, and was then exhibited at the Hong Kong Arts Festival as part of  the “Hand Over” celebrations and then at the Glastonbury Music Festival and the Circus 2000 Festival in England.

The concept of a hand with two thumbs symbolises a future evolution. At night this ghostly transparent hand seems to come alive with a haunting super natural power, radiating laser animation from the palm as if trying to communicate by drawing esoteric symbols into the air.

The Regenerating Phoenix

 

Canberra Festival 1998

This Spectacle Installation is inspired by the ancient myth of an immortal bird that builds a fire nest every one thousand years and has the ability to be reborn from its own ashes. The Phoenix is symbolic of rebirth and can represent the old year passing and the new year beginning. Custom designed as a New Years Eve Spectacle, the installation creates a mesmerising illusion. Within the giant golden fire nest, a shimmering Phoenix appears and disappears before your eyes. The installation features a Laser show which generates suspense towards a climatic midnight pyrotechnic finale.
