The French aerial circus Place des Anges which is preparing to soar above Auckland's domain next month, encouraging the audience to look skyward and form a new relationship with a familar place.

Meaning "place of angels" - the performance is part art, dance, circus, alpinism and engineering, and finishes with one tonne of white feathers raining down on the crowd.

Kathryn speaks with Artistic Director Stephane Girard and one of the 16 angels Jane Huxley who, at 54, is the the oldest aerial artist in the company.
