Oh the weather outside is frightful...

...well actually it isn't so bad today. But either way we wanted to post these screen shots of some amazing ice crystals and glacial caves from the BBC's Frozen Planet series. Needless to say these inspired one of our recent projects, and as soon as we have pics for that too we'll put them up!
For now, enjoy!

Panoply : DISCO CAVE

Much like Beyoncé has got Sasha Fierce, we have the Volkov Commanders. Together with artists Aliyah Hussain and Edward Wiffen, we, the Commanders descend from the moon every now and again to host PANOPLY, performance events that feature costume and art direction from ourselves and a selection of guest artists.

On November 30th 2011 we hosted and performed DISCO CAVE at Kraak in Manchester's Northern Quarter.
Thanks to all who came down and let us send them into a trance with our moon moves!

We'll be adding photos from the event to our site soon, in the meantime check out a selection by Hannah Furnell on her blog


While clearing out the computer's cobwebs I found this photo of the stage set we made for our May 2011 installment of Panoply.
