We invite you to a rain walk – accompanied by the recorded voices of children from across Australia and New Zealand. With their guidance the rainfall will become your own private theatre, a space in which to observe, imagine and play.
Because we are no better at predicting when it might rain than you are, everything you need to experience the show is contained within a little box that is posted to you when you purchase a ticket. Keep it safe until the weather turns.
Then, whether in a drizzle or a deluge, alone or with friends or family, we invite you to step outside, feel the rain on your face, and think about your place in a world that is changing so swiftly around you.
A Rain Walk is an interactive audio walk for adults and families created remotely with children from across Australia and New Zealand. One ticket can be used by a single person or a household of up to 5 people. Each audience member will require a smartphone (or MP3 player or iPod) with you as well as headphone to listen to the show as you walk.
A link to the audio track will be sent to you following your booking. A transcript is also available.
Please provide your full address details when purchasing your ticket so we can mail out your gift box (Australia wide.) The piece will involve being outside in the rain for approximately 40 minutes, including around 20 minutes of walking. You can of course wear a coat and bring an umbrella!
A Rain Walk is commissioned by Festival of Colour and Melbourne Fringe, with ArtPlay and House of Muchness. Originally commissioned in the UK and Ireland by Dublin Fringe, the Ark and Norfolk & Norwich Festival, with commissioning support from The Place.
Warning: Contains some infrequent/low pressure audience interaction
