SIRF Highlights - SIRF Central
This year we set up a pop-up shop on Stockton High Street as the base for SIRF Central. It played host to an exhibition of SIRF highlights and allowed people to get involved in the festival.
SIRF Highlights - Water Fools
The French company Ilotopie believes that every river is a reservoir of the imagination running through the urban landscape.
They solved countless technical difficulties to create Water Fools, a dream world where beds and lamp-posts find their way into the middle of the river, to be navigated by incredible machines that skip lightly across the surface of the water like insects.
It's a performance that mustn't be missed; a treat for the eyes and ears full of constant surprises, brilliant colours and pyrotechnic effects.
