Bridge is an ambitious outdoor experience produced by Coventry-based Imagineer Productions and created by artistic director Orit Azaz in collaboration with a creative team that includes designer Dan Potra, choreographer Corey Baker, writer Nick Walker, composer Peter Reynolds and circus director Paul Evans.
A bridge appears in the centre of town and becomes the setting for a three day programme of free pop-up events and happenings before culminating in an exhilarating live performance with an international cast.

Bridge: An Impossible Performance?
Bridge culminates in a new and extraordinary evening performance, with an international cast of performers. With gravity-defying circus acrobatics, parkour, theatre and live music, some unusually agile engineers attempt to bridge the gap and find it much, much harder than they thought.
Rehearsals for Bridge: An Impossible Performance?
In each town, local people make their own bridges and share stories of bridge-building (and bridge-burning). People and groups who wouldn't normally meet are invited to assemble a large self-supporting bridge, inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s design. Visit Building Bridges to find out more.
The Leonardo da Vinci bridge kit is available to community groups
