Notre Dame’s Btec Performing Arts and Production Arts students collaborated this month to create an installation called ‘Fire Aura’ as part of Leeds’ ‘Light Night.
This year was the 12th anniversary of Light Night, one of Leeds’ biggest free multi-arts events. It took place on the 6th and 7th of October and explored the elements of earth, wind and fire. There were over 50 pieces of artwork at this year’s event, with a combination of light projections, dance, theatre and street performances.
The Notre Dame students’ contribution, ‘Fire Aura’, was in the Emerald Grand Hall at Leeds Grand Theatre and it explored the communal draw of firelight. Over 600 members of the public were dazzled by the lighting and sound effects, and captivated by the story-telling performances which were delivered around the fire. The students also recreated their work at Notre Dame’s Open Morning on the 15th of October.
Well done to all the students and staff involved.
