It is a case of missing a place you have never been to. It is an instance when fairytales with fairy godmothers and Cinderellas, amazing ball gowns, flowers and trees all wrapped together in a cloth of memories and imaginings.

The Whispering Forest of Memories at fortyfivedownstairs, 45 Flinders Street, Melbourne
is this case and this instance.

Once you descend the stairs, all the way down to the theatre and go behind a black curtain, you end up in the truly magical forest with live trees and sounds to match.

The forest in the place where memories come alive, where memories of one person (Pam Davison) are taken, span, painted, sequined and ruffled for all to see and make their own. Feast your eyes on the dresses Cinderella would only dream of. Look at them through printed veils and see the things only you can see.

The Forest, just like Cinderalla at the ball, is here for a very short time. Make the best of it and see this collaboration of photography, fashion design, light and sound. The end result is so exciting and amazing that anyone can see that all the people involved enjoyed it immensely and 'spoke the same language' creating the installation.

You never know, you might even run into the Fairy God Mother/Cinderella herself or any of the installation's creators. Mind you, they are all art royalty themselves.
