At the Battersea Arts Centre, Friday 5th Sept, 9pm, pay what you can.
“Small groups of players wander through rooms real and imagined in a collaborative act of memory to create imagined, immersive theatre. ”
And at The British Library new edition of the Unbuilt Room, written to accompany the BL’s World War One exhibition Enduring War: Grief, Grit and Humour.
The British Library, Tuesday 16 Sept from 6pm.
“The Unbuilt Room is a performance-game exploring histories and memories of World War One. Written to accompany the invaluable digital resource created from the Europeana 1914-1918 project and the exhibition Enduring War: Grief, Grit and Humour at the Folio Society Gallery of the British Library, players experience objects from the collection in a new way, navigating poetry, patriotism and doomed youth in a verbal maze. Inspired by early text-adventure computer games and Alan Turing’s famous test, The Unbuilt Room combines theatre and choose-your-own-adventure stories to form a live game of interactive fiction. Small groups of players work together to explore an imagined landscape… without leaving their seats.”
