Stiltwalkers put on their costumes, rolling up the long legs, then sit on top of a car to strap their stilts on.
Shoes are attached to the stilts and thick, padded straps attached to the walkers' knees.
Then the performers have to be hauled up from the car.
Once on their "feet", they keep moving to balance.
Juliette McMullan (13, above) and (right) Sarah Tyrrell (16) rehearse under the direction of Juliet Novena Sorrel, herself once a stiltwalker.
The costumes were designed and made by fashion designer Fieke Neuman.
