EOI Open! 
Looks Like A Tourist 

Horizon Festival in partnership with DANCE.HERE.NOW is presenting ‘Looks Like a Tourist’ as part of the 2022 Festival, and you’re invited to join the tour group!

 

Looks like a Tourist is a large scale, site specific, choreographic work featuring orange inflatable ‘tourists’ that lead the audience on a sightseeing adventure.

 

If you like to move, are up for wearing an inflatable orange suit in a public space (You can see examples here) and want to be a part of this year’s festival, we would love for you to register your interest!

Please note that participation in the work involves wearing an inflatable full body suit (fun!), which includes a full face mask. It will be a largely visual and auditory experience, which will involve movement on a variety of surfaces and there may be long periods of walking and/or standing. You don’t need any prior dance experience or knowledge, however a willingness to follow direction and work with a group are musts.

 

If you have any questions about participating in the work, please contact: lookslikeatourist@gmail.com
