Ghost Peleton

 
In the public art performance Ghost Peloton, dancers and cyclists don LED lightsuits and hurtle through the dark in a jaw-dropping choreographed spectacle. The performance couples a night ride by LED-lit cyclists following the 2014 Tour de France route through Yorkshire, England, with illuminated dancing by performers from Phoenix Dance Theatre. The custom lightsuits worn by the participants can be controlled remotely, resulting in stunning synchronized patterns.

Ghost Peloton took place at the 2014 Yorkshire Festival, last summer, and was documented in beautiful night photography and a remarkable film. The performance is a collaboration of public art organization NVA and Phoenix Dance Theatre, in partnership with the transportation charity Sustrans.

Beautiful and creative — and great videography.

Thanks, Ursarodinia
