Go, Go, GO! Gravity Dolls
For ages: 7 years and over
"Had me in stitches" Cameron Woodhead, The Age
As its name suggests this show hits the ground running and builds to such a dizzying pace you’ll be left asking yourself, ‘how can they keep going?’ Bridging the gap between how generations play games, Go, Go, Go! is fun, spontaneous and interactive. We draw inspiration from classic games, ranging from retro video games to school yard classics plus some we’ve invented along the way and give them a circus twist. Entertaining with a sprinkle of nostalgia, Go, Go, GO! draws on stunning acrobatics and ingenious physical to create a playful, hilarious, spectacular world that celebrates why games - in all their various forms - stand the test of time. Go, Go, GO! premiered as part of the Poppy Seed Theatre Festival in 2018 under the previous title 'Tandem'. The title was changed to better reflect the show. We wanted to create a show that didn't take itself too seriously (in contrast to current world events) brings people together through a shared sense of play. We are building on the first season, redeveloping and aiming for Melbourne Fringe this year before touring.
Marketing selling points
- Entertaining and funny, this show is a welcome pallet cleanser and break from the pressure of day-to-day life. - Light hearted family fun. Multiple generations of families will enjoy little tips of the hat to the games that populated their childhood and leave the theatre brimming with nostalgia and sharing stories about their favorites. - Circus with a quirky comedy twist, expect those cheeks to be sore! - Celebrates good old fashion fun, speaks to our inner nerd and reminds us of the value of friendship and togetherness.
Key audience and marketing notes
Families – accessible an entertaining for all ages and parents will be tickled by the opportunity to share elements of their childhood with their kids. Social Gamers – there is a huge demand for social activities that connect and bring people together. This show will appeal to this audience because it celebrates and affirms human connection. School age children – while being great fun, this show also models positive, supportive relationships during play. Lovers of Comedy – this show is ridiculous and is ideal for people who like to laugh.
Community Engagement activities
We would love to leave a legacy of connecting with people through playing games. This could be kick-started by having a games night that follows the show or members of the community could bring in their favourite games to form part of an exhibition in the foyer in the lead up to the season.
