During the parade, the atmosphere is fuelled by the brass band Fanfare Le S.N.O.B. from Niort (F), which has become an integral part of the production after years of cooperation with Theater Titanick. Using saxophone, trumpet, clarinet, percussions and a banjo, Fanfare Le S.N.O.B. comments the antics of the pilots spot on. The dynamic and energetic music offers a wide spectrum from melodic phases to seemingly chaotic collages of sound.
In the last years, involving local creative dramatists and amateurs has become an important element of Titanick productions.
Theater Titanick offers interested people the opportunity to gain theatrical experience under professional working conditions and in unusual theatrical events. It is the local theatre groups with their personal knowledge of the performance location that give a unique quality and local flavour to the large-scale Titanick events.
