Traveling Treasury is a magical story telling experience that takes place in a beautifully transformed caravan. Step inside the pages of a book and let the stories unfold, quite literally before your eyes.
Think, dream and believe, as you are taken on a wonderful journey through sound, stunning visual paper creations and animated story telling. A wonderful experience for all ages!
Traveling Treasury draws on the successful collaboration between Vortex Creates and Highly Sprung, matching the beautiful and extraordinary design of Vortex Creates with Highly Sprung’s high-energy performance style and ability to interact with and engage new audiences.
Taking inspiration from the world of pop-up books, Traveling Treasury is a project that transforms street corners, festival fields and city centre spaces into a large scale pop-up book inviting audiences to become part of a story as it unfolds…..literally.
Making the ordinary extraordinary. Inside the caravan the world of books become real, physical, tangible. Providing audiences with an intriguing, never seen before experience where the space inside the caravan slowly transforms to become forests, dragons and cottages.
The first character audiences’ encounter is the Archivist. Outside the caravan the Archivist sets the scene and explains how the Traveling Treasury came to be.
On entering the caravan audiences meet the Travelling Treasury herself. Hidden in a world of paper, an illustration come to life, she entertains and enthralls audiences with a beautiful tale of love, loss and magic.
The project is primarily aimed at family audiences and invites them to engage in an original never before heard tale through audio storytelling and live performance.
