Search Party

On March 20th, London’s pocket parks, squares and piazzas were transformed into an immersive green playground. Search Party was the flagship commission for the Mayor of London’s ‘Find your London’ festival.  Searchers were lead and mislead through hidden gardens, squares and side streets.

Search Party was produced my good friends at Sing London and I was responsible for stage managing the King’s Cross route which involved 1,000 searcher moving between interactive performances and games in 10 different locations. En route, the searchers found themselves confronted with a wide range of tasks: taste testing water, meeting a mysterious mermaid, botany, ornithology,  hook a duck, joining a hula hoop troupe, a German exercise class and learning to dance the Gay Gordon.
