NVA's Speed of Light Salford now available to watch online

NVA’s extraordinary public art performance Speed of Light, brought The Quays in Salford to life in March 2013.

A centrepiece of the Edinburgh International Festival and recently staged in the docklands of Yokohama in Japan, the night-time work combines light, intentional movement and sound changing the way we perceive about a chosen environment.

Hundreds of runners in specially commissioned LED light suits animated beautiful, choreographed patterns of light flowing through key parts of The Quays including canal banks, bridges and public spaces around The Lowry, the Imperial War Museum North, MediaCityUK and BBC North.

Over 8,000 people from Greater Manchester and beyond came to witness abstract art written on the grandest scale: a work that can be simultaneously monumental and intimate.
