How like an angel

How like an angel

How like an angel

A highly unusual piece featuring contemporary circus in UK cathedrals. UK vocal group I Fagiolini collaborate with Australian company Circa in a new piece specially created for cathedrals which fuses Circa’s exhilarating brand of contemporary circus with the exquisite sound of I Fagiolini’s singing. "How Like An Angel" celebrates the beauty and grandeur of three stunning English cathedrals. Polyphonic Films presents a response to the show in fi lm, capturing the essence of this ground-breaking collaboration. The film was commissioned as part of The Space, a collaboration between Arts Council England and the BBC.
