Upotapia, Play Test

Kaiken keskus (The Center for Everything) is testing a new immersive performance set to premiere in 2023 by opening it for a playtest lasting two weeks

Kaiken keskus (The Center for Everything) is testing a new immersive performance set to premiere in 2023 by opening it for a playtest lasting two weeks in the beginning of June.

In the heart of the work are the simultaneous processes of blooming and withering.

Upotapia develops the young field of game performances in performing arts. The starting point for the work is to open space for posthuman game design, personal multisensoriality and multilateral understanding of space and time.

The art of interaction is enriched by developing intimate forms for performance, which create clear procedures of negotiation to validate the boundaries of each audience member. The central contradiction in the performance is the dissolution of boundaries between human and non-human and enabling a strong personal experience.
