VIDEO: Milton Keynes International Festival Dominoes take a tumble from The Point
IF:MK Festival promises another '˜10 amazing days' when it starts on Friday, and yesterday the Citizen was on hand to see one of its typically bizarre and brilliant events put through a trial run!
On Saturday, Station House Opera will bring Dominoes to Milton Keynes, transforming the heart of town with a two kilometre long, moving domino-like sculpture.
Thousands of white blocks are being used for the event, which promises to ‘respond to its unique city-scape.’
More than 200 volunteers are expected to help the movement along, with the action starting from our sadly defunct former multiplex The Point, so where better to watch the rehearsal from?
Check out our video and then visit the real thing - the smashing event will begin at 5.30pm on Saturday, weaving its way through our boulevards, parks and streets before the final domino will fall in Midsummer Boulevard East by the Theatre District.
