Kate McIntosh (NZ,BE)

Swiss premiere

duration : 45’ – 90’ (it's up to you)
individual route every 15 min

Worktable is a live installation. Worktable takes place in a series of rooms you enter and stay in for as long as you like. Once inside there are instructions, equipment and safety goggles so you can get to work. It's up to you to decide how things come apart and how they fall back together. We provide the hammer, you do the rest. Get to work!

Young festivalgoers can share in the experience. The minimum age is 6 and all children must be accompanied by an adult throughout the adventure. Worktable for adults too!
