GIANT spheres will thrill audiences at Castle Park in Colchester this weekend as a spectacular show of music and dance arrives in town.

Music of the Spheres has delighted audiences around the UK and Europe, including at Latitude and the Henley Festival.

Now, with support from Arts Council England, the event is making its Essex debut at Castle Park on Saturday.

Visitors will enjoy performances of contemporary dance and music created by Eye Music, a charitable trust founded by composers Lawrence Casserley and Simon Desorgher.

The 90-minute show starts with dancers and musicians inside transparent spheres and domes moving around the audience.

Musicians perform on a range of instruments whilst a giant sphere, the height of a four-storey building, will be launched on to the park’s boating lake.

Inside aerial dancer Claire Crook will spiral suspended from the centre whilst the sphere moves across the lake.

For the grand finale guests will be entertained by giant spheres and domes set to new music composed by Mr Desorgher on the flute.
