Bligh Spirit is visual and vocal spectacle that brings together the voices of Lost in Song and the Daylight Choir, with spoken word wonderment by Mc Mc Spoken and breath-taking aerial acrobatics.
Inspired by struggles at sea, oceanic adventures, love, loss and return; shanties and songs, live beats and spoken word poetry accompany a high-roped hiatus of wall-running and aerial dance.
Bligh Spirit has been created to be performed on the harbour wall at St Mawes and on the Observation Tower at The National Maritime Museum Cornwall as part of the Fal River Festival.
Bligh Spirit is a free performance, standing only and lasts approximately 25 minutes.
Viewing and audience spaces are limited so at both locations, please arrive early and we will do our best to accommodate you. Look out for our crew members and stewards who will be there to assist you.
