we’re very excited to be presenting a short season of deviator in canberra as part of the enlighten festival on the weekends of 28th feb and 1st march and then on the 7th and 8th march and we need 10 fearless local canberra performers to assist the audience in deviating from the norm.

deviator is an immersive, outdoor game experienced via smart phones in which audience members are invited to temporarily transform their city into a playgrounddeviator activates philosophies around revolution, positioning ‘games’ as a potential trigger to alter the official narratives of place.  the work is adapted on-site with a team of local artists who are embedded out on the streets and referred to as ‘the motherfcukers‘. the motherfcukers are a critical part of the work and are responsible for activating participants on the streets as well as communicating in realtime via their deviator smart phones with each player, adding or subtracting points from them depending on their ability to deviate.

check out the short promo of deviator here for a sense of the work:
