The Enchanted Forest (2018)

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.

The Enchanted Forest serves as an example of merging tradition theatre craft with technology to enhance children’s agency through active participation. It draws from total and immersive theatre to create a ‘performative installation’ where performers, storytellers and ‘enchanted’ scenography performs alongside children. It uses the power of storytelling and make-believe.
