10 Not-to-miss Experiences at Beakerhead this September

In just a few weeks, a five-day spectacle called Beakerhead will be taking over the city of Calgary with mechanical sculptures, interactive street art, feats of creativity and engineering, larger-than-life theatre, classrooms of creators and spectacular performances. To help you find your way through the more than 60 different events, we’ve put together a list of 10 experiences that will put a skip in your step!

Torched: This original food experience will jolt everyone’s expectations. Six top Calgary chefs and mixologists are getting creative in an industrial compound turned skate park in Ramsay. Imagine a car on its side turning a spit, a giant flame under an array of roasted trout in wire baskets, and a warehouse setting full of surprises.

alk: Try your luck at walking across a trough of cornstarch and water – barefoot – without sinking!

International premiere of BASS Ship, a two-story high communications device for sending messages to outer space – if you can crack the code. Hop in! It’s in the East Village.

Highly Social Science: We’re turning the side of a building into a giant social barometer in Mission. Get out your cell phones, this is interactive.

Tentacles: A massive octopus has managed to get inside one of Inglewood’s historic building!

Saturnian: Walk barefoot inside the belly of an inflatable robotic, exploratory, humpback-narwhal hybrid.

Cloud 17: Three interactive experiences, including a massive dome filled with mesmerizing projections, will be a light and sound show in the heart of 17th Ave!
