THE FOLLY : DESCRIPTION
A 70 foot light-filled clocktower soars over a public square and theatre dense with passageways, chambers and puzzles to traverse. A windmill engulfed in flames spins lazily in the breeze. Below the peaked roofs and balconies, soft amber lights throb from dormer windows and still other beguiling spaces whose dimly lit mystery beckons those on the ground.
Layers and levels will encourage a childlike sense of wonder and playfulness within a challenging, dynamic environment. Climbable surfaces, ladders, tunnels and suspension bridges will offer many potential paths while secret doors, puzzles and outright misdirection will challenge wits. Ultimately, lofty observation decks will reward the bravest and most tenacious with perspective-altering views.
The stage will offer musical, burlesque and other performance opportunities, both planned and ad hoc. Theatrics, ballet, spoken word, lectures, yoga classes and whatever else participants want to bring to this accessible public sanctuary space will be celebrated and welcomed (shirtcockers will be relegated to the Eastern Quarter). Budget permitting, fish and chips will be served with bad cockney accents, courtesy of English Jonny. Various other popup storefronts will include activities like bike repair, costume shops, karaoke parlor and mythic beast taxidermy.
