As part of her Three Little Worlds residency, Rachel Pimm hosts an evening public performance within the installation, producing a piece of work in response to the characteristics of Bureau Spectacular's architectural structures and the exhibition's themes of imaginary worlds, speculative futures, and alternate realities.

Sanford Meisner taught his method acting students to 'live truthfully under a given set of imaginary circumstances' using a technique of observation and repetition.

Rachel Pimm imagines Three Little Worlds as a proto-site for a potential new society in which the three pieces of super-furniture become empty speech bubbles. Actors appear and fill the space with improvised spoken word, translating and inhabiting the fictional narrative of the shapes in and amongst the audience.

Cast: Tom Hurley, Marie Fortune and Dominic Morgan.
