Newhaven Harbour will be transformed into a fire-lit, maritime wonderland on July 16th at the Newhaven Cormorant! a one-off spectacular outdoor performance with music, daredevil aerial feats and fireworks.
Newhaven Cormorant! is a collaboration between Brighton-based creative producers Zap Art and celebrated French street arts company Generik Vapeur, and will be like nothing Newhaven has ever seen before.
Newhaven Cormorant! will be an unmissable family event featuring fire boats, floating sculptures, choirs, performers and a breathtaking finale taking the performance right out into the harbour.
Dave Reeves from Zap Art said: "Newhaven Cormorant! will turn Newhaven Harbour into a stage for one night, using performance and pyrotechnics on land and sea to create something magical. The scale of the event is huge - it will be accessible to everyone and a wonderful show for families."
Newhaven Cormorant! is the second part of an on-going collaboration with Zap Art / Generik Vaperu as part of the European project ZEPA, (European Zone of Artistic Projects). The first event, Photo Communale, saw the Generik Vapeur bring a giant roaming camera to the streets of Newhaven, photographing the town and the people. The resulting images will also be used as part of Newhaven Cormorant!
The event will feature both international and local participants, as Zap Art and Generik Vapeur have been working with local artists, community groups and educational organisations as part of the project.
Newhaven Cormorant! is a free event and takes place in Newhaven Town Centre and Newhaven Harbour on July 16, 2011 from 8:30pm - approx 11:30 (finishing time may vary).
