Our mascot for 2016, Bravo Child is moving into the Precinct for September and creating a program of activations, art-based experiences and performances at various locations in the new precinct.
As a game designer, Bravo’s performance style incorporates a real-time element; drawing on audience participation with real world consequences. Bravo frames the month-long narrative as an Alternate Reality Game. The audiences piece the narrative together by collecting pieces of the puzzle before, during and after the event. In this way the art bleeds into the world beyond the confines of a traditional theatre setting and becomes a social experiment. The aim being to apply creativity and brave innovation to our everyday lives. Bravo’s signature whimsy and intellectual frenzy promise to whip visitors into an inspired state of wonder and play.
Joined by a host of both local and international guests from the arts for social change group UpUpTrampoline, audiences can expect to witness an array of creative offerings; from physical theatre, sensory art and transmedia storytelling to endurance art, experiential dining and art-walk tours.
