Appetite presents a Spanish spectacularFly up, up and away in an astonishing skyline show over Central Forest Park this July.
Following on from last year’s Water Fools, we are extremely pleased to announce our spectacular showcase event for 2018 - Voalá Station by Voalá, a high-flying outdoor performance taking place in the night sky at Central Forest Park from Friday 27 to Saturday 28 July.
Created by acclaimed Spanish company Voalá who have toured the world with their outdoor creations, Voalá Station is an extraordinary skyline show featuring aerial performance, live music and a mysterious tale that comes to life 40 metres above the audience’s heads.
When four businessmen miss the last train home they meet a mysterious homeless woman who gives them a flower. The flower’s powerful potion unleashes a spellbinding night full of seductive sirens and surreal action as a mesmerising and touching performance unfolds in the sky.
We have been serving up world-class events for families to enjoy in Stoke-on-Trent since 2013. Each year we’ve brought captivating events to the city, trying to offer something completely different and unexpected to local audiences. Over recent years headline shows have included explosive promenade show The Bell by Periplum, magical concert in the sky, The Enchanted Chandelier by Transe Express and last year, Water Fools by ilotopie which took place on the Central Forest Park lake.
Karl Greenwood, Appetite Project Director, says “At Appetite we love serving up surprising arts experiences to our audiences so we’re thrilled to be bringing Voalá Station to Stoke-on-Trent as our showcase event for 2018. It’s a mesmerising show which we think Stoke-on-Trent families will just love. We are very excited to see what this amazing Spanish company have in store for us.”
Gaston Iungman, Voalá’s Producer and Musical Composer, says: “We are very happy that Appetite have asked us to bring our Voalá Station to Stoke-on-Trent. We’ve heard the audiences in Stoke-on-Trent have brilliant energy and enthusiasm so we are extremely excited to share our comedic and magical tale with them all. Watching the story unfold above their heads with a live score, we hope audiences get swept away in the magic and believe that maybe one day they might fly.”
