For the second year running we provided full site decor for Lost Village Festival 2016. Still only in it’s second year but going from strength to strength. The directors of the label Moda Black the collective behind it really know what they are doing, with clear ideas about the identity and creative direction of the event. Taking the idea of a lost village deep in the woods they were keen to create a unique space incorporating different tribal elements, a sense of of abandonment and an air of mystery.
We provided full site décor from bespoke abandoned flags and bunting to tent ceilings and seating areas to individual installations throughout the whole site; giant abandoned tepees, pagan alters, giant dream catchers, cobwebs, mind bending mirror men in the woods and much more. Combined with incredible light shows from DNB Lighting, spectacular abandoned stage sets from Evolution Stages and out of this world immersive theatre from Zest Theatre all of the elements add up to create a multi-faceted wonderland in the woods.
We absolutely love working with the Lost Village team with such a specific yet open brief; we have the freedom to create a wide range of new work exploring tribal imagery and abandoned ephemera both of which we love. The project also allows us to to collaborate with other artists and practitioners who bring their own surreal tribal imaginings to the woods!
We are thrilled to have been invited back for Lost Village 2017 and are very exciting to this year be collaborating more closely with Zest Theatre and Evoloution Stages to further develop the immersive side of the festival.
“We have always found that the best results come from finding the right creative person who has all the right ideas. Those people are hard to come by when you’re as picky as us, but Ruthie and the Cloud Nine team totally excelled our expectations. Once we’d explained our ambitions and the inspirations behind the Lost Village project Cloud Nine were soon coming up with a multitude of in-brand ideas that perfectly matched our product. The results were fantastic and we look forward to doing it all again (and then some) next year!”
