    Barabbas' the cube A mobile, stainless steel 8-foot square cube, with a capability of carrying twenty-four spectators on seats suspended on the sides. The Cube is a mobile theatrical space that plays with the idea of perspective and performance.

    Spectators view a performance manipulated by puppeteers inside the Cube, through purpose built eyepieces and headphones; as the performance plays, the Cube moves silently through a public place.
