Be mesmerised by giant kinetic sculptures towering above, like UFOs landing at nightfall. Singing out a siren call as they spin, beautiful orbits of light are traced in the sky, creating the effect of a swarm of fireflies, or planets in motion.

venue choices
New Ground Portland – Following the success of Harmonic Fields in 2012, we were keen to return to Portland and in what better way than in partnership with the lovely people of b-side who make Portland their home. Located between the Victorian High Angle Battery and the Portland Heights Hotel, New Ground offers stunning views over Chesil beach and Weymouth Bay.

Weymouth Pavilion Forecourt – Weymouth is a destination town and we enjoyed working here in 2012 as part of the Cultural Olympiad. This location is a central point at which Chorus will stand out against the backdrop of the 1908 theatre, the Georgian Esplanade and the gorgeous views of the stunning chalk coastline that make up part of the Jurassic Coast.
