Audio adventures

Tessa Bide Productions is visiting Bucks libraries this half term (26 October – 1 November) with a digital tour of audio-interactive experience, ‘The Anarchist’s Mobile Library – An Audio Adventure.’

Following previous success with productions such as ‘The Selfish Giant’ and ‘Perfect’, it returns with an audio-interactive experience about literature and adventure.

The audio adventure will take participants on an audio adventure of their choice, solving problems and meeting characters, from wherever they choose to play.

Worlds to explore include an intergalactic space adventure; a deep-sea swim, meeting creatures that lurk in the depths; and an abandoned witch’s kitchen, complete with bubbling cauldron.

Having previously created impressive theatrical experiences for children, in this time of lockdown, the production company has linked up with expert technologists to create an interactive, audio adventure to let children be masters of their own destinies, inspired by literature and to change the stories they see unfolding around them.

The narrated audio piece offers the audience a chance to participate and choose what adventure they might prefer and what ending they would like to see, choosing story options as they go.

Bold and colourful animations will accompany the narration if needed, but otherwise children will be able to put down their screens and let their imaginations paint the visuals. While theatres are shut, the audio adventure takes children on an immersive theatrical journey of their own making.

Register for free and the link will go live on at 9am on Monday 26 October until Sunday 1 November inclusive.

Each adventure takes roughly eight minutes to play, and people can keep dipping back in again without limit to try different adventures and alternative endings.

Details of how to become involved are provided in the confirmation email and e-ticket.
