A performance artwork with performers dressed in various types of work wear playing in a colourful ball pit. Breaking down the conventions and roles that divide people in workplaces, this artwork offers a playful perspective on familiar work environments while also taking a building that blends into the city landscape and making a colourful statement. Inviting the public to view the performance from outside the space offers audiences an opportunity to look, laugh and see workplaces differently.
