Small Cave of Light


Anthony (Vahni) Capildeo created an immersive poem installation in the Warehouse for visitors to freely enter over the course of an afternoon. There were light projections, a soundscape and a floor-based labyrinth to walk, with activations led by the poet on the hour with slow words and gentle movement.
