machina excursion: Kingdom
A site-specific mystery radio drama game
- 35% adventure
- 30% parallel world
- 35% radio drama
This trip around the town lasts for two hours, oscillating between reality, science fiction, mystery and radio drama. The performance game is accompanied by mysterious calls and clues, opens the doors to uncanny buildings, takes us on dangerous errant paths, and holds enigmatic encounters in store. The visitors, operating in small groups, examine mysterious rooms, have to complete tasks and make decisions which have a major influence on the course of the story.
The artist’s group, consisting of performance and technique artists, brings the world of computer games back to reality by means of sensors, electronic equipment, and software. “machina excursion: Kingdom” adapts its interactive spaces to the local conditions of the market town, whisking visitors off to a strange new world. The worlds created by machina eX reveal what lies hidden in the nooks and crannies of everyday life.
