They present processional work ranging from intimate voyages, to large scale illuminated spectacle, bringing fire to places where the land, sea and sky meet. Working outdoors, often with community, LUXE draw on a dedicated group of international performers, musicians and artists to bring alive their visual world. LUXE’s amazing performers will spread light and fire around the square amongst the massed crowd and the public will be encouraged to join in with their own lanterns to walk to a fiery finale
