Description

Duke Riley’s epic outdoor work will see over 1500 LED-lit pigeons soar into the skies above the River Thames in a glorious spectacle of unprecedented scale and beauty.

In its first international performance since its premiere at New York City’s Brooklyn Navy Yard in 2016, Riley’s world-class airborne installation has been reimagined for London’s historical military location of Thamesmead, paying beautiful homage to some of the First World War’s unsung heroes who played crucial roles delivering messages between distant personnel.

Part of 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary.

Fly By Night is a co-production with LIFT.
