We need your help to stage GDIF's Opening Night Spectacular!
Muaré, 20 June 2014
GDIF is renowned for its free opening night spectaculars. Over the years, enthralled Festival audiences have witnessed a disaster movie in the sky, dancers scaling the front of the Queen's House, a giant 12m puppet awakening and even a life-sized sperm whale. Staging such extraordinary, jaw-dropping occasions is hugely expensive and to be able to continue to present them we need your help.
This year's our planned opening night spectacle Muaré is set to be an astonishing spectacle in which aerial performers from the Spanish/Argentinian company Voalá swoop overhead on a giant "op art" mobile accompanied by live music. If you've seen De La Guarda, Fuerzabruta or marvelled at the staging of an Olympic or Paralympic opening ceremony you'll have some idea of how incredible this event will be!
We need to raise an additional £5,000* to make this event happen so please help us achieve this by donating.
Please support GDIF's opening night today!
*Every pound you give will be matched through Arts Council Catalyst funding.
