Built by Scarborough's community and made entirely of recycled and repurposed materials, Grue returned for December 2022! The fantastical world was created from positive energy and discarded paper; a wandering cardboard labyrinth of rooms to explore and wonders to discover. However, much like our world, Grue became cluttered and clogged with rubbish.
With the help of our audience to examine this strange place, we discovered new ways to help the fragile land. Working alongside an unexpected investigator, who joined our journey we found out where the music was coming from in the distant mountains. We invited our visitors to collaborate with each other, seeing the impact we can have on the environment we live in - both in and outside of Grue.
Rome wasn't built in a day and neither was Grue! Check out the timelapse below, showing how we pieced all of Grue 2022 together:
