TANDEM: A CHOOSE YOUR OWN CIRCUS ADVENTURE (28 NOVEMBER – 9 DECEMBER)
POPPY SEED THEATRE FESTIVAL
Inspired by retro video games, board games and the absurdity of Japanese game shows, Melbourne-based circus-duo Gravity Dolls creates a new interactive performance game: Tandem.
Bridging the gap between how generations play games, Tandem is fun, spontaneous and interactive – it allows audiences to work together to play a suite of games with a circus twist.
Featuring an assortment of object manipulation, stunning acrobatics, hand balancing and ingenious physical theatre, the games may includes giant Jenga with an acrobat perched on top as pieces are removed; Twister where the players wear the twister mat; and ring tossing aimed at toilet plungers that are suctioned to performers’ heads.
