AS part of the UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK Festival, outdoor arts company Walk the Plank is working with locals, artists and community groups to create beautifully choreographed and accessible gatherings in Exmoor.

The joyful and participatory artworks will be created at dusk by volunteer 'Lumenators’ and captured on film.

Green Space Dark Skies is a series of 20 large-scale outdoor artworks in the UK’s most outstanding landscapes.

It runs from April to September and is a once-in-a-lifetime national celebration of creativity connecting the people and places that make the UK special.

The gatherings will celebrate the countryside and how people can explore it as well as encouraging responsibility to take care of it for future generations.

The Exmoor mass gathering will be accessible and easy to reach and everyone is welcome to register for free to take part.

Red Herring Productions will be working with community groups and artists to create the artwork for Exmoor National Park.

Red Herring director is Paschale Straiton and the event features performer, composer, and sound designer Jules Bushell as musical director.

The lead is creative director of Exmoor's Pleasure Dome Theatre, actor and musician Helena Payne.

Other artists include dancer, woodlander and artist Katy Lee, who uses story and myth to create performances in spaces from castles to coastlines, and Lisa Sture a step dancer, traditional fiddler, tune-writer and ceilidh caller.

Paschale Straiton said: “Gathering people together to celebrate what's special about Exmoor is an exciting moment for us.

"It's a place where a quality of mystery still clings to the stones and a tradition of folk tales and music remain vibrant.

"This is a moment to bring local people together and support this culture while adding new and wonderful memories to the place.

"We hope many local people will join us for a magical evening of lights, music and action."

Only people who register can participate and the locations will not be revealed to the general public.

Participants will receive a smart light to enable the digital choreography to be filmed, while also being sensitive to the night-time environment.

Each short film will incorporate the stories of the people and places featured and will be broadcast online afterwards. The lighting technology uses existing wireless programmable low impact lights, and incorporates something that’s never been done before: the ability for these lights to be animated through geo-positioning."
