The Enchanted Forest is a participatory installation for children 0-10 years and their grownups. It prioritises children’s engagement by weaving together children’s ideas with fairy folktales, myths and interactive technologies, to create a space for playful imaginings, interactions, performance and storytelling. It originally opened at Theatre Hullabaloo on the 11th December 2017 and ran till 5th May 2018.
“She who wanders through a building or a site acts precisely like a film spectator absorbing and connecting visual spaces. The changing position of a body in space creates both architectural and cinematic grounds. The consumer of architectural (viewing) space is the prototype of the film spectator. ”
