On the Edge of Things is a Fierce Beauty
I have to admit now that I haven't a clue what was going on in the show but it was awesome. There was a woman in wheely tower who waved her arms a lot as the rhino, bird and dragon moved around the space. Fireworks and sparklers happened. They made great use of the arches into the parade ground. Elaborately costumed dancers followed each mechanical puppet. There were also dancers on stilts: they were so comfortable walking around on them, I wondered if they had been born that way! After a while, a giant puppet woman came in and the real woman in the tower hung a glowing heart around her neck. I'll just let the pictures tell the story.
