THE BUG & THE TEMPLE
The design process begins months before the event, with workshops taking place regularly at HSBNE in Brisbane. The effigies are largely prefabricated offsite, and then transported for assembly on site two to three weeks pre-event.
Build - offsite 8 weeks before the event (weekends); onsite 1-2 weeks before the event.
Opening ceremony; Friday - rehearsal (2-3 hours); performance (1 hour)
Burn night - assist Rangers & F.L.A.M.E. crew. 2pm til end of burn.
We welcome all skill levels, although some experience with carpentry, bamboo construction, lighting, or large art construction is a plus.
The best way to get involved is simply to show up at the next workshop in HSBNE and introduce yourself. Upcoming workshop dates are posted on the official Modifyre facebook page.
If you can't make it any time soon, send us an email at email@example.com and tell us about yourself.
