The Game Game

Seven players gather for the purpose of overcoming unnecessary obstacles. They dwell in a thick environment of sofa emotionality, blown-up megalomania, grand orchestral landscapes, aimless efforts, shameless hedonism and self inflicted pseudo-competitivity. In The Game Game real stories and  prefabricated emotions clash in an unpredictable set of seemingly arbitrary rules. The participants linger in  a sphere between the generic and the personalized.
