Description

FOUR SEASONS is a hugely ambitious series of cross-disciplinary work that looks to the seasons to reflect different stages of life.

Occasionally a side character, sometimes the focus, FOUR SEASONS follows Polly’s journey from 8 to 80 years old, charting innocence, love, loss, regret and acceptance along the way. Designed to target audiences outside the theatre, FOUR SEASONS has seen MBD take their work to a whole new public.

SPRING, an outlandish, innocent and interactive garden has been a huge hit with children and the young and heart. Since its premier in 2005 SPRING has continued to delight family audiences at street festivals throughout the UK.

AUTUMN, designed for galleries and black box spaces, offers an atmospheric and contemplative experience. Using a constantly shifting blend of lights and projection, accompanied by a stunning score by The Broadway Project, AUTUMN is an utterly immersive snapshot of people entering the second half of their lives.

WINTER, an mp3 audio tour through a mysterious winter landscape that combines cutting edge design, an engaging narrative and an expansive electro/classical score to create a thoughtful, intimate and moving experience. WINTER, like spring, has been a huge hit with street festivals audiences around the UK, particularly older members of the public.

SUMMER, will premiere in 2011 and is designed for galleries and black box spaces. The installation will investigate the highs and lows of early adult life and will capture the excitement and uncertainty of a time filled with opportunities, adventure, growing responsibility and a countless array of life changing decisions.
