LOCK UP | 2021

Work in progress of an interactive performance for young audiences, presented digitally during the 2021 Imaginate Festival.

Lock Up was conceived as a design-led live work, created in collaboration with designer Katy Wilson, which was altered by the pandemic. Along with theatre-makers Matt Addicott and Fiona Manson, the project was created collectively as MI85, with live and recorded digital sections, and physical boxes delivered to young participants.

The boxes led the participants through a series of real and online challenges, in order to try to unlock their new identity as a secret agent. The project required the creation of print and digital materials with an analogue feel, a website, photographs and film, and culminated in a (top secret) live group zoom.
