Tuesday - Sunday

Admission: Free

In the Lobby Gallery you are invited to step into a space where you can create characters, act out fairytales and put on a show in a shadow puppet theatre. You can be the performer or the audience member.

Inspired by Ulla Von Brandenburg's exhibition Under Water Ball and artwork in the Summer exhibition Behind the Curtain, this theatre is a space to play and discover: to act out ideas from the exhibition downstairs, or to just to let your imagination run wild!

These ideas give a starting point to use this space. Could you

  • Tell the story of what happened to an unusual crow...
  • Tell the story of an incredible escape...
  • Tell the story of a transformation...
  • Tell the story of a mighty struggle...
  • Tell a story of something that got left behind...

This space was made collaboratively by the VISUAL team. Why not take a picture of your performance and share it with us? This interactive space is suitable for all ages.
