Thank you for making the impossible possible. It has been nothing less than a total delight.
“I just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you so much for your stunning lit performance on Wednesday night. I know it was a challenge and that we pushed you out of your comfort zone and I thank you for being so accommodating. You guys did a great job, it looked brilliant and the client was very happy with it.”

Just a quick line to say thank you all very much indeed for your patience and hard work on Saturday. Private events - especially ones in private venues - can be challenging, but we've had fabulous feedback; you all did a great job, and looked great in the setting - a perfect enhancement to the space! Thanks again, and I look forward to the next one.
It all went really well and the performers looked great. Thanks again.
Luminous was like something beautiful out of a Peter Greenway film.

I just wanted to send a quick message to say thank you so much for being so easy to work with. We've received excellent feedback from the Organizers and have a very happy Client.
The performance was superb and the feedback has been universally positive.
You were amazing – everyone stopped to watch. Thank you.
The Dragons are a perfect walkabout entertainment to celebrate the big occasion. Vibrant and fun, The Dragons are four bright and colourful walkabout creatures that were inspired by the Gaudí sculptures in Barcelona.
“Your performers were fabulous. We would definitely use them again – the crowds loved them….”

The Dragons veer between high-energy prancing and sculptural stillness, with their long tongues tousling your hair and their lizard like movements. They leap from one place to another – but beware! – they are very interested in the contents of your bags, your pockets or even your sandwiches.
