And we get to do it again today! Hooray! Shows are at 1.30pm and 4.30pm – we hope you’ll be able to join us! We’d love to see your pictures from the show. You can share them with us using #Fragile15

The whole team had dinner together after a final day of rehearsals here at the bOing! International Festival in Canterbury – we are all raring to go for the first two performances of Fragile here tomorrow at 1.30 and 4.30pm!

After a rainy week, the sun shone down on Fragile today for the dress run.

If you are in the area tomorrow, don’t miss Fragile….or bOing! There are some amazing things to be seen!

In the meantime, have a look at what happened here today during rehearsals:




After having such an amazing time last month in Glasgow for the launch of our newly commissioned outdoor show with JCBs, we are really thrilled to be back on the Fragile trail again…this time getting ready to perform at the bOing! International Family Festival in Canterbury this coming weekend.

The diggers, drivers and dancers are all onsite and rearing to go! We are all looking forward to seeing how performing the show on grass will be compare with the tarmacked surface of Glasgow city centre.

While we have been busy preparing for bOing! our JCB operator Kev Burrow and dancer Martina Bussi have also been busy, being published in the press!
