A boy and a girl separately discover a magical marble, which opens up a new world of adventure. This narrative is the basis of the three-part The Very Wishing Story, which transforms Queen Street into a canvas for Night Festival 2016. Featuring a parallel narrative, this three-part experience starts at opposite ends of Queen Street – one at Supermama@SAM (“The Cave”), relating the girl’s journey, another at National Design Centre (“The Forest”), relating the boy’s journey. Both journeys converge at a lighting installation at Waterloo Artsplace (“The Waterfalls”), where the characters meet other children in the story and create a magical world together.
