Run Amok!


Ruckus presents Run Amok, a unique treasure hunt, adventure game and immersive journey through the Canberra city centre.

Hunt for dinosaurs, get involved in activities with strange beings, follow the map and see the city through new eyes. Who will win?

Ruckus is based in Brisbane and Melbourne, presenting poetry slams, immersive theatre and site-specific performance. Ruckus loves to run amok with communities and involve audiences in re-inventing spaces for performance and storytelling.

Run Amok is an hour-long event, with three sessions available. 


Ruckus is Brisbane’s most ferocious poetry slam family. Extending to Melbourne in 2016, they are bringing their irreverent take on spoken word, storytelling and theatre to new cities and new heights with immersive theatre shows, community events and site-specific performance that breaks the boundaries of performance art. Ruckus is your festival jam, bringing slams, performance art and immersive theatre projects to Jungle Love Festival (QLD), Rainbow Serpent Festival (VIC), QLD Poetry Festival, Anywhere Festival (QLD) and Woodford Folk Festival (QLD).
