The Enchanted Island

The Enchanted Island is a promenade play that takes us on the legendary vanishing Island Hy-Brazil and invites you for a walk with the fairies.

The play extends an invitation to explore the effects of climate change in places near the ocean through playful sadness. The audience walks within audio landscapes where merfolk sip seaweed tea inside eerie underwater buildings, Seagull-John cooks white birds over trash fires, and dreams and magic appear in multiple forms to fight our lack of belief in their existence.

Duration approximately 1 hr – route approximately 3 kilometers outdoors, please wear proper walking shoes and dress according to the weather.


August 2023, more details soon.
