Arcadia.. dress rehearsal.



Arriving at Elizabeth Quay around 6pm it was impossible to miss the main attraction. In the evening sun it was more about size.. you can see the men climbing up one of the legs to the left side, but the giant arachnid was quiet, and then.. the music started, it slowly built up and suddenly a loud blast and fire spurt forth making everyone close by, myself included, jump..


Looking back to the city you can see many spectators lounging around in bean bags.. as the sky darkened the music grew louder..


... and then it was all on, lights flashing, music blaring, flames bursting forth.. quite an astounding sight...


The actual shows are Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, where the quay will be cordoned off for ticket holders, but to be honest I really enjoyed the rehearsal, it had all the pizzazz without the crowds :) The show is called Arcadia.. check out the link and you will see how the giant spider was constructed using recycled scrap metal and the spectacle of the actual show.. incroyable!. Happy Friday, take care and stay safe... P.s. sorry about the overload of shots, I couldn't decide :)

  3. I went to a dress rehearsal once but no one was wearing dresses. It was a ballet dress rehearsal. :) Nah, just kidding. That is one fantastic monster you've got and I love your photos and I can imagine you jumped with it roared. I would have sprinted across the oceans to get home!

  16. Thanks for your lovely comment. I can sympathise as I'm battling with a heavy cold, though it's only 3 degrees C here. Can't imagine what 37 feels like when you're unwell! Hope you'll soon feel much better. Lovely to know we can cheer each other up across the globe. Those blue skies in your pics are working a treat for me.
