THE CONTROL ROOM
Interactive performance

Would you rather experience a series of misfortunes or sit around doing nothing?

DESCRIPTION

In a live board game reminiscent of Jumanji, The Controller invites three players to inhabit ‘The Control Room’. As leaders of a fictional island nation, they are faced with a series of questions stemming from our current political climate. Juxtaposing right and wrong with success and failure, each player embarks on a noble quest of maintaining the balance of morality. With deep voices ringing out from dark corners, the consequences of every decision are played out and the fate of each island is determined with the rolling of the dice.
