Shop windows come to life at The Square
Shoppers at The Square Camberley were taken by surprise this weekend when the window display at Squish Pop-Up Theatre came to life before their eyes.
MANNEQUIN, a show in a shop window, is part of a new Miss High Leg Kick project inspired by Japanese Kabuki – a classical form of Japanese dance-drama – and the 1987 film Mannequin.
Mannequin, a shop dummy, came to life at the busy shopping centre on Saturday, catching many customers unaware and creating the perfect opportunity for a photo. The window displays are based on a fictional department store, with the show brought to the centre by Surrey Arts, supported by the Arts Council England.
The artists involved specialise in highly accessible work defined by creative approaches to audience engagement, humour, and a love of spectacle.
Rhoda Joseph, Centre Manager of The Square said, “It’s the last thing any of us expect to see when we’re just strolling through the shopping centre! We loved having the artists here to entertain our shoppers – it was great to observe their display bringing a smile to our customer’s faces.”
The next event at The Square is the Easter Kids Camp, with a jam-packed schedule of crafts, sports and dance workshop sessions starting from Monday 4th April. For more information, visit Facebook or www.thesqcamberley.co.uk
