THE Stockton International Riverside Festival launched last night (Thursday) with Safe House, a large-scale performance by the contemporary arts organisation Metro-Boulot-Dodo.

Visual projections formed the backdrop to the show on Trinity Green as the company explored the significance of home and the importance of being part of a community. Acrobatic performers scaled the walls of a mysterious house, appeared out of windows, climbed onto the roof top and flew around as rooms, memories and characters were revealed.

SIRF 14 offers up to 30 individual shows a day from noon until 11pm.

This year’s themes include Outer Space, Great Explorers, The Big Bang and Journey to the Centre of the Earth.
