A beautiful, astonishing and breathtaking spectacle to enchant audiences of all ages.
Place des Anges (“Place of Angels”) is a spectacular outdoor performance by the French aerial circus company Gratte Ciel (“Skyscraper”). Featuring circus performers, dancers and climbers it is an unforgettable experience of awe-inspiring, high-altitude aerial circus.
As night falls across the city, angels begin to appear, high up in the sky. They move through the air, magically suspended above the crowd below. The angels start to glide down into the audience, releasing white feathers which float across the sky. Each angel has their own unique character and style and as their aerial antics become more boisterous, the clouds of feathers thicken, creating a sense of awe and wonder.
This is only the third time that Place des Anges has been performed in the UK - the two previous performances took place at London's Cultural Olympiad in 2012 and for Hull's UK Capital of Culture programme in 2016. And the IF: 2023 shows are the only performances in Europe this year!
Don't miss one of the highlights of this year's Festival!
