Pipedream – A Musical JourneyPlayscape
The Venny had gone through some difficult times in terms of management, which proved quite challenging for the kids. This project was a celebration of what the children had been through and was a statement about them staking their claim on the playground.
The project was a collaboration with musicians from Chamber Made Opera where we ran a series of workshops are design of the new play structures and the musicians ran workshops exploring different aspects of the music. The end product was a series of structures and musical instruments that were scattered around the playground.
As part of the project we built a range of small installations including the upside down bamboo forest, the beehives, bamboo log drum, thong whackers and wind chimes. Each of these installations have a musical and playful quality allowing the children to interact and generate sound.
