Story of Lamp
The Arts Centre asked us: How can we show off the little-known underground nooks and crannies of our building? The Story of Lamp was an interactive adventure for kids and adults through the Arts Centre’s labyrinthine corridors.
The adventure began at a humble lamp located next to an armchair in the public foyer. Each visitor received a magical book, designed by Nick Lewis. When the visitor touched their book to the lamp’s base, The Story of Lamp came to life.
Voiced by actor Tilda Cobham-Hervey, Lamp whispered to the visitor, asking them to lean in and hear her real voice for the first time. Lamp then directed visitors on a journey through the corridors. As Lamp spoke, the intensity of her light flickered in step with the pace and drama of her story.
