A live video game performance (where the audience controls the action) created by German theater company machina eX. Presented in partnership with the Goethe-Institut Washington.
In this live-action twist on the familiar “escape the room” video game, two audience teams must help their human avatars escape from the clutches of an evil mastermind, using only the materials at hand to find the keys, unlock the doors, and beat the clock.
originally developed at Gessnerallee Zürich, by machina eX
