“Steaming with energy run on youth fuel”



“Positively brims with youthful energy”


You are lime-cordially invited with big pomp and grandiosity to the very very spectacular and probably amazeballs re-opening of the Lyric Hammersmith, as rescued from the jaws of certain defeat by THE INTERVENTIONISTS!

The rebuild of the Lyric Hammersmith has gone slightly off course since the executive team were sectioned because of the stress. Fortunately a team of plucky young architects, builders, cleaners, theatre-makers, dancers, musicians and singers have staged an intervention and are working against the clock to finish everything in time to launch the Grand Opening Mega Machine and save the day.

In April 2015, the Lyric Hammersmith opened the Reuben Foundation Wing - a brand new arts centre featuring recording, dance, film and tv studios, a cinema, a sensory space, and a digital playspace. To launch the new building, Bad Physics were commissioned to create an explosive and energetic interactive experience for guests to explore the new spaces and to discover their powerhouse commitment to young people.
