Estimated Time of Arrival ‘E.T.A’
In collaboration with LB Camden Council, Studio du Cirque du Marseille and The Central School of Speech and Drama:
E.T.A was an extravaganza of carnival, aerial, digital visuals, live breakbeats and dubstep. A huge show featuring the amazing aerialists from 'Circo Madrugada', The London Breakbeat Orchestra, playing an original score, and with their regular players hooking up with students from The Camden School for Girls to create something new...and.... wait for it... 200 local performers from Kings Cross and London generally.
The outdoor show tricked the weather and attracted a huge audience both nights. Zip wire's, cranes, vast video screens and guerrilla projections onto local buildings, roaming cave men, wheel of death, tracks written in collaborations between school choir's and grime rappers, bollywood troupes and knitting clubs.
The show was ambitious, and working with so many people from different groups was a trying but also very rewarding experience. One of the key elements in this production was that, being a celebration of the opening of a high speed rail link to Europe, the emphasis needed to be put on cultural diversity, both past and present, that has shaped and will shape the Kings Cross area. In order to achieve this the bassline crew worked with a whole host of local people, from school groups making puppets to a local Indian dance choreographer.
