135 artists are involved in creating 70 different individual immersive spaces, a 300-person music venue, an arcade with 14 games, four tree houses, an interactive cave system and more. This exhibition takes audiences of all ages into a fantastic world of exploratory imagination by way of a radical new form of storytelling where audiences are immersed within a multi-media art experience that unfolds through an interactive and magical narrative.
