Arts Fringe - Labrynth

Plastic Pathways – Escaping the Labyrinth (Fringe)

by Michelle Rumney

Find you way out – or in – of the Labyrinth on the beach by the pier. Walk, run, stomp, jump, laugh or dance your way through. Lead or follow, fast or slow, loudly or quietly – there are games to be played here all afternoon and after dark for all ages.

Labyrinths have been used in Europe for around 5,000 years as places to meet, walk, explore, muse, wander, and also to celebrate together. This 10m wide circular labyrinth, with its pathways of sandcastles and recycled, glowing plastics invites you to play and also to ponder – are we really escaping the oceanwide labyrinth of pollution we’ve created for ourselves and our planet?

Labyrinth artist Michelle will be on hand to help you find your way – in, through, round… untangle the paths, find your own way, show others, lead on… escape if you can!
