Described as an “aerial dance party,” Cristal Palace marks the return of French street artists Transe Express, who caused a sensation during PIFA in 2011, when they suspended themselves high above Broad Street in a so-called “human chandelier.” This year, they’ll take their act to the banks of the Schuylkill River, where they’ll combine their signature gravity-defying stunts with an immersive, bacchanalian environment. Spectators are encouraged to dance, drink and make merriment as the performers do their thing. Zimbabwean a cappella group Nobuntu will be on hand at each show, performing live as an opening act.
