The belly of the beast will be a surrealistic space designed to play with the mind and senses. Simply experiencing the interior’s sensory overload of sights, sounds, and smells; the tactile interior and décor; the taste of absinthe; the arduous entry and exit, will be a rite of passage.
The red walls are complemented by a series of red lights programmed to pulse and flicker and turn on and off. A further flight of stairs, highlighted by guiding light strips, will lead up into the horse’s head.
