en route

one step at a time like this (Melbourne)

Originally produced by Junction Arts Festival and one step at a time like this in association with Sawtooth ARI and Richard Jordan Productions, UK, for the 2012 Junction Arts Festival

Returning after sold-out performances at Junction 2012, en route is a pedestrian-based live art experience, meticulously designed to unfold a love- letter to Launceston, revealing a space where the public and the private, the imaginative and the concrete, intersect.

Guided by directions and instructions made up of snippets of narrative, musings, music, dialogue and philosophy using audio, mobile phone communication, urban streetscapes, walking, passers-by and cafés, en route is a seductive solo journey through the city and often, the hearts, minds and perceptions of the participants.

en route has been presented at some of the largest festivals and events in the world including the London Cultural Olympiad 2012, Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2010, and Adelaide Fringe Festival 2010.

“…revelatory. I guarantee you’ll see this city in a way you have never seen it before. En route is strangely empowering.” ★★★★ (4 out of 4 stars) Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

Note: Suitable for 13+. Please bring a mobile phone (fully charged) per person - it is not possible to do en route without one.

Dress for the weather and walking.

Central Launceston starting location is revealed via text message approx. 24hrs before your en route session begins.


Inspired by Festival performances, join us on a VIP culinary adventure at some of Launceston’s finest restaurants. Enjoy a completely unique Festival experience starting with a prix fixe, followed by a personal VIP escort from the restaurant to your show destination, and see a world-class Festival performance from VIP seats. Want more? End your evening with a nightcap at The Junc Room.
