Virago LIVES

After a week of late nights and early mornings in the space, our new touring show ‘Virago’, a collaboration with Sonia Sabri Co, opened at mac on Saturday.

The giant marble run

We were invited by Make Space to run a creative play session at this year’s Godiva Festival, the UK’s largest free and ticketless family festival (there were nearly 150,000 visitors this year!) Over the course of the weekend we welcomed around 3000 people into the tent to build and play with a giant Rube Goldberg-esque marble run.
