Are you ready to play?
Join an immersive, outdoor game with a smartphone guide to temporarily transform an area outside Brisbane Powerhouse 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 and play as many of the games as possible.
Games are scored on difficulty and range from activities such as guerrilla pole dancing and ring-a-ring-a-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.
