Place des Anges

Presented by Hull UK City of Culture 2017 and Yorkshire Festival in association with Amy Johnson Festival

A playful and visual spectacle to enchant audiences of all ages.  

As night falls across the city, angels begin to appear, high up on the rooftops. They take to the air, magically suspended above the crowd below. The angels start to glide down into the audience, releasing white feathers which float across the sky. Each angel has their own unique character and style and as their aerial antics become more boisterous, the clouds of feathers thicken, creating a sense of awe and wonder.

Place des Anges is created and performed by French theatre producers Gratte Ciel.
