The Dream Engine - Heliosphere

Heliosphere  - The Dream EngineFrom England

A new star rises in the heavens

As the day draws to a close, a new light rises over the Commonwealth Games. Is it the moon? A wayward star? Enter the surreal world of the Heliosphere, a mysterious place between heaven and earth where a weightless Helionaut hangs, suspended far above the ground under a six-metre helium balloon, soaring, spiralling and spinning in graceful and enigmatic tumbles. Performed by British aerial company, The Dream Engine, Heliosphere is a spectacle to inspire, mystify and enchant.
