Nuke town Villages #4: “Boomtown”
[These blogs describe and document the villages made by audiences as part of my new project Nuketown.]
Made by: Audience at performance at Bike Shed Theatre, Exeter (18 people)
Buildings featured (from left to right): The Giant Radioactive Duck, The Helipad, The Gathering Place, The Dog Playground, The Crane, The Hot Tub Car, The Monolith, The Solar Powered Flying Sauna, The Swimming Pool Hovercraft, The Government Surveillance Unit, The Cloisters.
Themes discussed: Puppy Libraries, open spaces, Passivhaus buildings.
Jack’s Thoughts: This is the most impressively scaled build so far, with lots of imposing structures. I think being at lots of separate small tables might have spurred the audience on to compete with each other a bit.
Quote of the build: “There’s a slightly creepy fascist vibe to this village” – Josh
