Hidden Creature Gallery

Hidden Creature Gallery

Let The Hunt Begin

Ever wondered what your favorite tree in the park was thinking? What does your toaster think about your choice of cheese spread?

Part laboratory, part performance and all imagination, Hidden Creature Gallery is an exciting interactive work for school-aged children and their families. Existing between the digital and the real, this work empowers young people to bring to life the places and objects around them and give them voice.

Using extensive experience, Arena Theatre Company will create an immersive and fun space that blends nature and technology. The process of making the creatures encourages the students to think about their community connections and identity by revealing the experiences they share. The creation of these creatures is a celebration of shared culture and of the individual imagination.

Combining inspiring art and cutting edge technology Hidden Creature Gallery is enjoyable, entertaining and educational for everyone.
