The stage is set with carefully stacked cardboard boxes. Daryl and Jon look at a cardboard music player and there are colourful graphics overlaid to show sounds.

An Unseen World

Who says a line should always be straight? What’s wrong with zig zags? How about curves?  

In An Unseen World we meet someone who can't make head nor tail of the unspoken rules he is surrounded by.

Sometimes STOP means GO, and GO means STOP. Is he supposed to go this way or that? Everyone else seems to understand, but for him it's all a bit too confusing. Then when he gets it wrong, he’s made to sit out.

An Unseen World explores the unspoken barriers of attitudes, social etiquette and behaviour that surround us… How do you know if a barrier is there if you can’t see it? And if you can't see it, how can you remove it?

This is a story about being made to feel naughty, just because the rules don’t make sense.

An Unseen World is still in development. We hope to bring it to you in 2024.

“The kids throughly enjoyed it and in this day and age where everything creative and artistic is being cut from our school, it's so important to give them this to experience”
