Excerpt from Access All Areas Feb 2011 The structure will answer a lot of questions, according to managing director Gil Gillilan.
“There aren’t many temporary structures like this built specifically for performance,” he says. ”We spent two and a half years moving the project forward, and it’s a totally new design. There are two stage areas, and capacity for rigging a lot of weight in the roof.”
Outside Kneehigh’s touring schedule, the structure will be available through The Dome Company by special arrangement.
