Anya Hindmarch: Cascade (2013)

Another fun but edgy show with my team.

Cascade featured an extraordinary display of 55,000 cascading dominoes that magically triggered bags to rise from hidden locations. After we had installed the  animatronics we left the  dominos builders for five days until the day of the show. All was good until we almost had a  guest in a fur coat trigger off the dominos falling  before the start. Security!

Set design by Rachel Thomas and dominoes by Mr Domino Robin Weijers.
