Thanks Doubledown for this mention & sorry you could not make it

On the Saturday performance, the sim was full up well before show start and some people had to camera in from a neighbouring sim.

On Sunday people were arriving more than an hour before show start and again the sim was full well before the start. We were forced to do two back-to-back performances to try and accomodate everybody.

Further dates for 'The Wall' will be released soon, and negotiations are currently taking place for a 4-sim venue; one sim for stage/performers, three for audience.

We, The Cybernetic Art Research Project(CARP), will also be producing shows of similar size and complexity in the future & will keep you informed!

Thanks again for your support :)
