Living Tree at The Egg Theatre Bath
posted 14/9/2021

Gabriel Ware's emotional soundscape 'I Am An Insect' features in Andrew Amondson's Living Tree installation.

From the Creative Canopy in the Roper Room to the interactive roots hanging in the cafe below, you are invited to explore the fascinating connections waiting for you in the forest. Berlin based artist Andrew Amondson shares his Living Tree concept, a community activated installation, co-created with artists and audiences in Bath. The 5 meter tall twisting geometry of the Living Tree will be constructed using thinnings from Hooke Park Forest and is co-designed with Charley Brentnall from Xylotek, Alexandre Mballa-Ekobena and realised by Carpenter Oak with support from Shedworks. Native trees and plants fill the space for the 3 week installation before being planted in participatory urban wilding projects in the city.

Forest of Imagination artists join The Egg’s artists in residence in animating the space with light and sound, story and workshops for all ages. Get lost, become a bug, find a new path, lie down on the forest floor and listen to the life all around you.
