Game


Distant Bodies and Accomplices

is an online game that uses the theatre as its map. You can take on the role of a playable character in the theatre or ‘take control’ from home as a player on the game’s website. The movements and choices made within the game shape the performance scripts and soundscapes that serve as a guide for characters and players alike. What happens when your avatar is another person with their own set of motivations? What resistance and implicit violence is felt when you are being played?



Within the field of game design the project sees itself in relation to existing games that move towards performativity:

Augmented Reality Game


Alternate Reality Game

Mixed-reality game


Pervasive Games 


Trans-reality game


Remote Live Action Game 



Online Player control Real Live Avatar
