Around a four-day residency Close Act MSL created a three-month community programme of capacity building and engagement activity culminating in a street procession for three thousand people, and a climatic, spectacular performance for an audience of four thousand. Pi Leau was an underwater world of whales, mermaids and deadly fish, combining acrobatics, pyrotechnics, dance, music and theatre.
Here's what people said about it:
"A performance of the very highest calibre. Raised the profile of Hastings; what a great place to live!"
"It was magnificent, breathtaking and FREE!"
"It brought all ages of the community together."
"A memorable, amazing experience that I was proud to share with my children."
