Photos from last night’s The Curse at Luna Park

We had a ball launching this year’s This Is A Door at Luna Park in St Kilda last night! There’s a bunch of playful things happening over the month, you can check out all the details here. But in the mean time, have a look through the photos from last night’s game, The Curse. It was so much fun to play around the tents and rides of Luna Park!

They’re behind you

by Emilie Collyer

It was the start of a beautiful friendship.
They met playing a simple game and swiftly became a tight gang of three. Like the Famous Five or the Secret Seven, but only three.Read More

The Curse

In the shadows, behind the tents, a fortune telling machine beckons. “Cross my palm with silver” reads a cracked and painted banner. But these things are ne’er straightforward. Will it simply tell you your future? Or will there be some kind of trouble…

The Curse is a new game for The Village festival which will be played on Friday the 2nd and Saturday the 3rd of November, 2012, with two sessions each night at 8 and 10 PM. The game lasts up to an hour.

Search out the Pop Up Players’ Tent Boss and his team of showies, fortune tellers and clowns, and cross their palms with silver (or at least a $5 note) for a magical brush with fate you’ll never forget.
