A unique aerial concept. Two hoops play in synchronicity suspended high in relative darkness. The performers ascend in ghostly form. Dressed in long white radiant gown the girls create a world of their own, their dresses changing colour on whim. As the music starts the performers light themselves and their movement with a bespoke led lighting system pulsating with light in time to the music. Caught in a mesmeric atmosphere they play out their special dance.
