Mummy Walk


The Mummy Walk was a commission for The University of Manchester's Museum to promote the opening of the newly refurbished Egyptian Gallery. The event unfolded in Piccadilly Gardens. The public were invited to decorate lanterns, learn a dance with the assistance of Danny Henry, and then take part in a procession alongside illuminated towering mummies and a group of mummified circus performers as the light diminished.
