seeking deviator touring artist

16 November 2018

are you ready for some serious play in mandurah and bunbury?

pvi collective are heading off on a regional tour of deviator, a large-scale game that charges players with the mission of seeking out hidden audio instructions which encourage them to temporarily transform their town into a playground.

From the tiniest of private deviations to the boldest of public actions, deviator blends radically altered versions of children’s games with subtle live performance, placing audiences as interventionists out on the streets, ready to creatively disrupt the city, one game at a time.

deviator proposes that adults revisit their streets with play in mind. Audiences are given a 45 minute time limit, games are scored according to difficulty and a team of sly mischief makers are positioned out on the streets ready to play hard with them.

we’re looking for an artist who can join our core team to help us deliver deviation from the norm in Bunbury and Mandurah.
