Great Gold Bird, Great Dark Yawn, a wanderplay
by Twin Alchemy Collective

May. 01 - May. 31, 2015
All week

A dark shape, a wooded clearing, a disappearing ship.  

A tin cup whistling on a string. Rabbits gathered in a torn dress: Twin Alchemy Collective presents GREAT GOLD BIRD, GREAT DARK YAWN (a wanderplay by Katie Green). Experience a multimedia, site-specific theatre piece/alternate reality game, inspired by classic point-and-click adventure games. You will travel to mystery locations all over Austin to find objects such as letters, photographs, home movies, and time capsules to uncover the narrative alone or in a group, on your own time (within the month of May). It should be completed in 4-5.5 hours, but can (and should) be spread out over the course of a week or a month. Smart phone required (iphone and android).
