Playing is hot: you can find an escape room on every street corner, Squid Game is the most popular Netflix series in ages, the gaming industry is booming and now that it's allowed again, all the LARP'ers are gathering in the woods. A game has the power to create its own world within the real world. We put everything into it, even if it is "only" game.

On the play floor, two players gather: Joep Van der Geest and Louis van der Waal. What is at stake is the attention of the third player, the audience. Each separately against each other, and occasionally with each other, they must complete a whole series of short actions and scenes: in jabber, tongue-in-cheek English, eroticizing French or sign language. There will be dying and crying. The logic of the game will only be intuitively imitable and a riddle that you, the audience, want to solve. A kind of "Lauf der Spiele" by analogy with the famous "Lauf der Dinge" by artist duo Fischli and Weiss.
