Staring in a music video for Jewellers

 I was invited to feature in the Official music video for the track ThirtySix from the sampling duo's upcoming second album Lakeswimmer.

As a girl sleeps her dreams become projected on the room around her, her love of dancing becoming an overwhelming spectacle that is born, grows, and dies without a single spectator. Composed, Directed, and Shot by the wonderful Jack Offord.

The video is to be released soon so watch this space!

Heliosphere at the Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona

I was invited to perform the Heliosphere at the Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona by Paraddax. I performed 6 shows in total over 2 days as part of The Dream Engine. The show was alongside a water and light display at the giant fountain in front of the Catalan National Art Museum. The show took place during "Networking at Moonlight" followed by a set performed by DJ ISIS.

Performing in Hawaii for Cirque Du Soleil

I was invited to perform at a huge high-end event in Maui, Hawaii.  SAP had booked Cirque Du Soleil to perform at 5 hotels for their event all down the coast of Maui.  I was based at the Fairmont.

We were working alongside Paraddax, performing silks off of the Heliosphere - a show created by The Dream Engine which comprises a giant balloon filled with helium and an aerial dancer suspended below. Along side the silks show there was a resident Cirque singer and roaming characters.  The characters at my venue were all from the Cirque show Allegria. Click here! to watch a short clip!
