The Hybrid Society and Crate Expectations

Cake Industries (Jesse Stevens & Dean Petersen)

A stack of wooden boxes that dance, sing, play and perform bring whimsical joy and delight in Crate Expectations – appearing from nowhere, and disappearing just as quickly. Out of step with time, these striding stacks are followed by a soundtrack from the 1930s and have lots of hidden treasures to discover.

In contrast, The Hybrid Society take the form of a pair of social media influencers so obsessed with their phones that they find themselves beginning to morph into household appliances. Having entertained audiences all across Australia, these roaming robots will inhabit the Adelaide Festival Centre precinct for the duration of DreamBIG.

Performances: Each roaming session will run from 10:00am – 4:00pm, Sat 22 and Sun 23 May
