Polytoxic teams up with internationally acclaimed design duo Craig & Karl and animator Pete Foley to bring you this spectacular new site-specific work.
Delve into a world where the screen consumes our lives; where snooping is an everyday activity and the lines of public vs private are indistinct.
Come play in this pop-inspired playground where you’re only as memorable as your last live feed.
Sound Design Kim BustyBeatz Bowers
Projection Consultant Blake Granston
Production Manager Ryan Mahony
Performed at Flowstate
Initially developed in partnership with Brisbane Powerhouse. Commissioned for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games “Festival 2018” with the support of Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation, City of Gold Coast and Queensland Government and Commonwealth Games Federation.

Such a pleasure to return to performing this piece, Love doing slow-mo movement and turning up to work in thongs!
And it's nice to return to where we first presented the work as part of the On Edge Festival back in 2012 (thanks Nicholas Mills <3)

It might seem like the Polytoxic crew are pretty quiet but the opposite is true! The Polytoxic team is made up of independant artists so keep an eye out for all the works each of the Polytoxic crew are in! Checkout Natano Faanana in Casus circus, or Fez and Mark jettsetting around with Briefs, Lisa on her sweet ride with Hot Brown Honey and Leah setting up shop in the U.K. with Terror Australis! And keep posted for when this killa team gets in the same room again! #polytoxic #aiga
