Safe House Aerial performance -NNF 14

What a fine end to the Norfolk and Norwich Festival. Safe House, an aerial performance about the importance of home and family stability marked the end of the festival with a dazzling aerial display. I was fortunate to witness their final rehearsal on Friday 23rd of May, courtesy of WEX Photographic through their “Low light workshop”. I was one of  twelve contest winners who had the exclusive opportunity to photograph the artistes going through their routine one last time before the big night. The workshop was lead by internationally renowned fashion and music photographer Paul Bayfield (The Timesniper). He was ably assisted by Ben, Emma and Josh from WEX. Big thanks go to Paul Bayfield, Ben, Emma and Josh and all from WEX, and to the performers from the production “Safe House” who allowed us to photograph them.

The workshop and subsequent live performance took place on St. James’ Court, just behind the Puppet Theatre on Whitefriars, Norwich.

Here are some of my photographs taken at the event:-

The Safe House production was performed by Metro-Boulot-Dodo which means live to work, although in French this can be taken several ways ( nothing but work, or work, work, work, or perhaps live to work – like you enjoy your work)
