A commission of new original work designed and installed for Shambala Festival, a highly successful and established arts event, renowned for its creative, unique programming.

Running for the duration of the festival, the piece became a stage set, meeting place and a games board, where imaginations ran riot and dynamics changed from daylight family games to intrigue and mystery through shadows and spotlights under cover of darkness…
