Dinopocalypse presented by Ruckus Poetry Slam Reviewed by Natasha Hayes
Performed at the home of Backbone Youth Arts which was previously East Brisbane Bowls Club I knew this would not be your usual theatre performance, the space is known for using all of the space available including the bowling green.
This is an interactive immersive experience which I am happy to take part in as often the case and this performance is no exception keeps the actors “on their toes”
We are greeted into Dinocorp staff who recommends we have a drink of choice at the bar.
The staff are friendly and professional making sure everyone is comfortable and answer any questions we might have about dinosaurs.
They are young maybe members of Backbone Youth Arts so what do they know about dinosaurs, they know a lot, they have done research.
It is time to meet the dinosaurs we are all eager to step outside the meeting room.
The first dinosaur I met was gentle and playful who encouraged us to stay together and wanted us to stay with in her compound.
She suited her skin and her face although was covered her touch told the story.
Meeting another dinosaur she was very different in the way she moved and interacted with the visitors to her compound.
The staff managed to answer when they were asked some “curly questions” by the visitors that they may not have expected.
The show ended abruptly so I am left wondering what the future will hold for the dinosaurs
Go and see the dinosaurs before they become extinct again!!
