About the Show

Commissioned by the Barbican, Create London, Warwick Arts Centre and the Economics Department at the University of Warwick.

This exciting site‐specific, promenade experience for children aged 5 plus and their accompanying adults is fun, beautiful and thought provoking; exploring resources that money can and cannot buy. In a world where objects come to life and the unexpected is always happening, you may unearth the things you value the most.

Audiences were invited to explore the secrets of a very unusual bank. They stepped inside and discovered that something wasn't quite right in this extraordinary world of money. They met some bemused bank customers on this interactive journey and, together they searched for the elusive Bank Manager.

"A delightful, stunningly visually inventive show. Worth every penny"
