FREEDOM Carnival “tested” in Hamburg

ArtReach Director, David Hill, visited Hamburg for the STAMP Festival to see elements of the Night of Festivals Night-Time carnival tested for the first time.

STAMP was delivered in the Altona suburb of Hamburg 4-6 September and included performances by Stelzen Art and Oakleaf Creativity, both using costumes designed for the premiere of the new Night-Time Carnival event in Leicester on Saturday 3 October.

In October Stelzen and Oakleaf will combine with Mandinga Arts under the direction of Tom Lanzki (Bangditos Theatre), to create this special Carnival event as part of the Rugby World Cup celebrations. A particular feature of the event will be colour changing costumes worm by extraordinary stilt performers.
