The Curious Voyage

Written and Created by DANIELE BARTOLINI

Based on an idea by ARKADY SPIVAK

Various locations throughout Barrie, Ontario, Canada & London, England

For immersive theatre aficionados, culture vultures, musical theatre buffs, and adventure seekers, The Curious Voyage was the ultimate experience as viewer became participant. Staged in two versions: a 1-day adventure for audiences local to London, England; and a 3-day experience taking audiences from Barrie, Ontario to London, England and back. The unique journey unfolded through one-on-one exchanges, surprise interactions, and installations devised for one voyager at a time. The maze-like narrative of encounters with performers and clues throughout the city culminated in a stunning site-specific rendition of a Tony Award-winning musical which was kept secret from voyagers until the very first line was sung. Spoiler alert: it was Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street; Book by Hugh Wheeler, Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
