About Take Ten

Take Ten is a performance installation designed to slow us down. It’s a space to be present, in the here and now, to reflect and to notice.

Audiences can take a moment on our bespoke and colourful swing chairs, guided by a soundtrack that encourages them to sit comfortably, swing gently and breathe deeply. ​

Take Ten is an artistic response, created in collaboration with Lorna Rees of Gobbledegook Theatre, that is centered around the idea of mental wellbeing.

It is underpinned by the ‘5 steps to mental wellbeing’, Fluid Motion’s own research with communities across Hampshire and clinical psychologists who helped to shape the audio.
