By: Marie Skouenborg (dk)
Duration: 4 hours
Number of players: 4

 

The scenario is about four board members known only as I, One, You and We, due to their specific manner of expression, body language and phrasing. They are desperately trying to impose their will on the board meetings, while privately struggling with personal issues of sorrow, anxiety and loss. The four characters only know each other in a superficial way from the intense arguing on the board meetings. To get their agendas through, they simply have to get to know each other better outside the board meetings. But what happens with all their plans, ideals and conflicts when they suddenly know their opponents on a personal level? And what will they decide to do with the empty lot down the road?
As a player you will be subjected to verbal and physical rules about how you can interact with the other players. You will be an active part in defining what story you are creating, and you will unfold your character during the game.
