An atmospheric journey across a Berrington parkland transformed by live sound, folksong, fire, performance and pyrotechnics.
As the bell struck seven the audience made its way to the lake. As dusk fell people gathered to experience a haunting soundscape across reeds and water then returned to the Hall through a parkland illuminated by sound and fire. From the steps, to the sound of live 18th century music, the audience witnessed the final pyrotechnic mapping of Brown’s ingenious landscape.
STRANGE MAGIC was an elegy to Capability Brown’s 18th century design and paid tribute to the workforce who built it.
STRANGE MAGIC completed GENIUS LOCI, a year of installations and performative events celebrating Capability Brown at Berrington.
