Masquerade is a playful intervention in the audience’s everyday life. Using their mobile phones, the audience are invited to participate in a Venetian ball with all its intrigue and drama. Participants receive text messages and phone calls from the hosts of the ball with instructions and clues. They must use these clues to solve the mystery and take the glory. The dramatic spectacle of Masquerade adds wonder and delight to any outdoor space in any town or city.
Yello Brick believe in the power of play to bring strangers together and allow them to see everyday spaces through new eyes, Masquerade is a unique event that combines digital and outdoor art forms to do just that.
