The Outdoor Pagan Pandemonium Games will be a free (but ticketed), Covid friendly, outdoor theatre show performed over one weekend in October across two locations, with 4 performances. Like a village fete/sports day, local families or households will apply to partake in ridiculous games, competing for an impressive prize.
The games will be inspired by local customs and rituals which involve communities coming together in acts of solidarity and ‘collective effervescence’. The audience will be given a ‘build your own ritual toolkit’, resulting in the participation of a new, safe and accessible ritual which marks the passing from B.C (before Corona) optimistically into the N.N. (new normal). The audience will literally pass through a threshold, as they exit the event.
