We make immersive & interactive experiences for young audiences

Installation art & performance design studio

Approach

We believe that by providing opportunities for hands-on engagement and sensory stimulation, we can create memorable experiences that leave a lasting impact on our audience

We specialise in creating engaging and interactive experiences designed specifically for children and families. Our creations are known for their interactive, sensory, and imaginative characteristics, blending sensory technologies with artistic flair seamlessly. Our main goal is to boost audience engagement through encouraging interaction and play, engaging all senses to craft an immersive journey. Our proficiency lies in combining traditional craftsmanship with interactive technologies to develop tangible interfaces. Our installations serve as spaces for dance, performances, storytelling, and imaginative play.
Join us on this enchanting journey as we continue to push the boundaries of interactive experiences and inspire the next generation of young minds to dream big and think outside the box.

The Delights          

Created by Makers of Imaginary Worlds and Turned On Its Head.
Scratch performance at City Arts Hoopla Festival, Summer 2023.
Funded: Arts Council England and SSBC

“Meet Bud and Buddy Delight, who wake from sleepy hibernation to discover a delightful, enticing world that has appeared around them. These curious, playful characters reveal the dance that comes from within them, inspired and motivated by their new world. They spin, ping and fling, inviting children join them in their dances and creating an outdoor playground full of wonder, joy and delight.”
 The City Arts Hoopla Festival of Summer 2023 would forever be remembered as a celebration of creativity, unity, and boundless delight.

“The interaction with light and music. I also like how you can feel the different textures of the coral. My daughters came on Saturday with my husband and I came back today and she showed me everything and how it worked.”
