The Times

Award-winning filmmaker, writer and artist Penny Woolcock has taken over our Main Space with a major new installation realised in collaboration with Block9, the designers famous for creating the extravagant fantasy worlds of Glastonbury’s after-hours stage.

Utopia is a city experienced through imagined environments peppered with narrative soundscapes that will reverberate with stories that are personal, political and pertinent to the parallel lives being lived in the world’s biggest cities.

Woolcock’s curiosity and craft for storytelling underpins all her work. For Utopia, she spent many months uncovering the stories of Londoners from the most wildly diverse of backgrounds to reveal the hidden narratives of our city.

Inequality, consumerism, housing, gentrification, education, crime and social media loom large in a fascinating, multi-sensory world created specifically for our vast Main Space.

Breathtaking … spectacular

Step into the personal, painfully honest, and strangely beautiful
