Prepare for city-wide disruption as Australia’s notorious tactical media art group pvi collective take over the streets, one game at a time.

Developed on site with a team of local artists, deviator is a darkly playful site-based intervention, blending radically altered versions of children’s games with subtle live performance and turning the audience into unwitting interventionists.

Having installed the deviator app on your smart phone, you will take to the streets for one hour on foot. As deviator players, you are charged with the mission of seeking out hidden audio instructions in the cityscape which encourage you to temporarily transform your city into a playground, encountering en route an elite team of sly mischief makers intent on interrupting the urban fabric…

Are you ready for some serious play?


All participants should read the essential audience information here before attending.

The deviator app will be available to download onto your 3g smart phone from www.conflux.co.uk before the performance and activated on arrival at the venue.

If you have a smart phone with the deviator app already downloaded please arrive at the Arches five minutes before the performance begins. If you need to hire a smart phone please arrive at the Arches 20 minutes before the performance begins for your induction. Please note there will be a limited number of phones to hire and identification (a valid passport or driver’s licence) must be provided as a deposit.
