Tonight is the last night of Limelight in Salford Quays.
Salford University in association with CUBE invited us to bring Limelight in front of the BBC buildings in the new Media City for three nights.
Come and see us there tonight, hopefully the weather will be a bit nicer!

Toronto Nuit Blanche

We just came back from Toronto where Limelight was presented at the fifth edition of the Nuit Blanche. After an installation in the pouring rain on Friday, the weather held for the event on Saturday and the crowd was amazing, the spotlight was constantly surrounded and the passers-by queued to go in, a real pleasure to watch, smilling all night.
Here are a couple of pictures and descriptions of the night gathered from the net before we upload our own pictures:


It was really nothing more than two spotlights shining down into the middle of the street at Yonge and Grosvenor, but its beauty was its simplicity. Essentially, the street corner was turned into a stage, and random people become the performers as they stepped into the light and did...well, whatever the hell they wanted. A large crowd was consistently on hand as they were treated to impromptu acts of performance art, acrobatics, and a 300+ pound man running through the light with his shirt off, screaming at the top of his lungs.
