Lumiere London 2018 ensured that all Londoners were included in the fun through a series community participation projects that engaged residents in several Outer London Boroughs. The Umbrella Project was a choreographed performance piece using LED umbrellas by Bristol-based Cirque Bijou. Cirque Bijou have worked with community groups in Redbridge, Greenwich, Lambeth and Waltham Forest through a series of choreography and performance workshops to create a glowingly beautiful artwork that will pop-up in Fitzrovia, Mayfair, Piccadilly, Regent Street and Victoria.
