Collectivity – Humour – Space
The Hospitality is a spaceship leaving earth with a group of travelers that share and shape each others destiny together. It is a philosophic story with a touch of sci-fi that happens in a choreocracy – a society where decisions are made through collective movement in space. The choreocratic society decides to initiate a cosmic movement, a travel in space that might never end. Will the travelers ever return home, and who will they then be?
The Hospitality is not only a spaceship, but also a game in the space around gifts, loss and collective action. Instead of asking “what do I gain from this?” or “What’s in it for me?”, this game aims for a logic where questions like “What do I lose from this?” can be asked in a humoristic, collectivistic and empowering way. The space travel with The Hospitality explores collective choice and the love in making decisions together.
