A contemplative game happening undercover in a library. Equipped with an iPad and a headset, you have 90 minutes to explore a maze-like archive in search of the secret at its centre, guided by a live performance happening discreetly around you. Created by Zuppa with Trillium-Award-winning writer Kate Cayley, this performance, online book and game, travels through the debris of civilization in the age of rising sea levels.
