Red Follows Yellow Follows Blue Follows Red is yet another outcome of our continuing investigations into crowd behaviour and audience participation.
The concert hall becomes the stage, the audience the actors. Each audience member receives a pair of headphones and a red, blue or yellow cape and is asked to follow the instructions.
These instructions invite the participant to move across the stage and interact with other participants in different ways. For example, participants with a red cape are asked to ’follow yellow but avoid blue’, while participants with a blue cape are asked to ’follow red but avoid yellow’.
The combined reactions of the participants to the ever changing instructions leads to constantly transforming formations and patterns.
