The directors of the Paralympic Opening Ceremony, Jenny Sealy and Bradley Hemmings, created a more gentle and thoughtful show than the bombast of the two that had preceded it. The entire area of the stadium floor was covered with an enormous flat floorcloth, unencumbered by any large scenic pieces. Instead the show was about movement and lighting and projection, intertwined in a poignant and poetic dance of intensity and colour.
