Join The Masquerade!
We are pleased to announce that we have been commissioned by Without Walls, Brighton Festival and Winchester Hat Fair to create an outdoor game for touring to festivals all over the UK.
Without Walls, a consortium of 10 of the UK’s leading Outdoor Arts festivals and organisations, brings the best in new outdoor performance to diverse audiences all over the UK, providing opportunities for UK artists to develop bold new ideas – from large-scale spectaculars to more intimate pieces, inclusive of all art forms and genres. Since 2007, Without Walls has commissioned and supported over 90 shows, many of which have toured beyond Without Walls to 22 countries across the world.
The piece we will be developing is called ‘Masquerade’…
Masquerade is a playful intervention in the audience’s everyday life. Using their mobile phones, they are invited to a world of anonymity and duplicity that spins a web of lies and truth around its guests. Players must carry out tasks, hide their secrets, and do whatever it takes to win. They will need to form bonds, break relationships and be ruthless in the pursuit of glory.
Over the next few months we will be working to make Masquerade and testing it with the gaming community in Cardiff. For a first chance glance of this new game please come along to our playARK After Dark events at the Wales Millennium Centre so you can see it grow and influence the final outcome.
We’re already lined up for Brighton Festival, Stockton International Festival, Winchester Hat Fair and The Greenwich and Docklands International Festival (please see more info below) so if you are there please come on over and say yello!
