The Children of Modernity
Rossie Heath was monochromatically colour blind from birth. On 14th June 1972 a miracle occurred. She dived into a lake and emerged from the crystal waters into a new world of colour. She was healed and The Children of Modernity was born.
This piece is set in the early 1970s on a commune called The Children of Modernity. Rossie
has gone missing. Through a series of interactions and explorations, we invite
our audiences to find out what happened to her.
Up to eight audience members at a time sit inside a bell tent where they uncover and experience the story via various means including voice over; video projection; a binaural (3d) audio recording; musical soundtrack; and a series of clues. The clues encourage exploration of the tent, where the audience find a key, a tape and a letter that lead them from one element of the story to the next.
