Hanging From a Helium Balloon at the Buitengewoon Festival 2011

Just back from performing at the 18th BuitenGewoon Festival of up coming street theatre in Doitchenem, Holland. The name of the festival translates to “Just Outside” reflecting the types of performances that could be seen.

This is a 3 day arts festival held annually for the public. This year On 24, 25 & 26 June, they had circus companies such as Ochhams Razor, with the show The Mill (Great Britain) and Jango Edwards & Cia Passabarret, with the show Big Boss & Tanda Rica Circus (Spain and United States) performing on the latter days of the weekend. 

I was to fly off the bottom of a giant helium balloon for a company called The Dream Engine. This giant balloon is otherwise known as a Heliosphere. We flew up to 25 ft where you could see some gorgeous views over Holland at sunset. 

 The venue in which we performed was in a car park, next to a beautiful river. 

 The 25 hour road trip there and back was pretty intense but survived to tell the tale.
