In A Deep, Dark Forest (interactive game)

Devised by Simon Bedford and Roslyn Oades

Once upon a time in a deep, dark forest elves were hiding in the shadows, using their cunning to avoid being frozen by the light.  Come step into the story…

Simon Bedford and Roslyn Oades transform ArtPlay into an enchanted forest as they create a brand new life-size immersive game for children.

Played in the dark, this unique experience sees a group of children working together to complete a special quest and bring to life a classic storytelling adventure.

This project is part of ArtPlay’s New Ideas Lab program, where artists are supported to create new work for children and families.
