Prepare for city-wide disruption as the streets are taken over, one game at a time, by deviator. This immersive, outdoor game with a smart phone guide invites audiences to temporarily transform their city into a playground.
Adapted on-site with a team of local artists, deviator activates philosophies around revolution, positioning ‘games’ as a potential trigger to alter the official narratives of place. As a deviator, your mission is to seek out and activate 15 audio instructions hidden in public spaces and play as many of the games as possible.
Games are scored in terms of difficulty and range from activities such as ‘guerrilla pole dancing’ and ‘ring-a-ringa-roses’, to ‘spin the bottle’ and ‘twister’. Each game encourages players to explore their public space in a new way and deviate from the norm. Having received a deviator smart phone and brief induction from a member of pvi, you take to the streets for one hour, ready for to play it out to become the highest scoring deviator of the night!
