THE SHOW MUST GO ON
Dorset Magazine|October 2020
From a fiery garden to reflective art installations on the beach, Bournemouth Arts by the Sea 2020 has plenty to intrigue and entertain in a socially distanced fashion

A much-needed dose of cultural activity is coming to Bournemouth and Poole this autumn. Thanks to the hard-working organisers at Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival, the annual event will return in a revised, Covid-friendly format from 25 September to 4 October. Large scale fire and light installations, thought-provoking film screenings, interactive community projects and immersive sound experiences will make up a smaller than usual physical event programme – each with timed entry slots and limited capacities to manage social distancing. What’s on offer sounds lively and intriguing, with a mix of arts and culture that all ages will enjoy.

Included in the line-up is Arts by the Sea Associate Artists and long-time collaborators, Ithaca Studio, who present an outdoor adaptation of their large-scale light extravaganza, Sea of Light (3-4 October). Specially designed for a central Bournemouth location and the ‘new normal’, witness thousands of light spheres in a dazzling 360-degree light experience accompanied by a surround-sound music composition.
