A magical new interactive experience, designed and created by Sean Westgate and Frauke Franz. The Beetlebuns are extremely shy creatures but they are great fun and full of surprises. Come and let them show you their planet full of weird and wonderful things where crazy machines turn and magical trees blossom. Hop onto the carpet and watch how digital characters and objects start to react to your every move. Motion capture cameras enable images to be triggered by the children in real time. Join gobbledegook to play, explore, delight, create, interfere, or just watch – and see how projected stories will develop in front of you.
