What People Say...

Extra Information

Pause; began its life as a micro performance in a one man tent, with a bad pun for a title (Present Tents). We soon upgraded the performance to a better name and a more spacious white gazebo. It was redeveloped when it was selected to take part in the Gi20, a national showcase for new and emerging outdoor artists and projects.
