Arts Fest Preview: Les Arts Sauts' Sara Sandqvist

There has been some consternation on the streets of Wellington over the appearance of a gigantic white dome on Waitangi Park.

The 28-metre high bubble - kept round by internal air pressure - is the setting for French company Les Arts Sauts' new work Ola Kala ("All's Well" in Greek). It opens the Friday as part of the New Zealand International Arts Festival.

The show involves complex cross-trapeze work, flamboyant costumes and musicians playing live 12 metres above the ground.

Performer Sara Sandqvist spoke to Lyndon Hood about the dome, the show and life with Les Arts Sauts.
