THEATRE: By The End Of Us ‘Live Video Game’

By The End Of Us is a ‘Live Video Game’: performed by actors, live-streamed to theatres in real-time. With new player interactions every night, no two productions will ever be the same. It’s a new strand in immersive and digital arts.

 The show follows assassin Mia Culper (geddit?) fitted with a camera and microphone  live-streaming a first person point of view to her Contact guiding her through the mission to eliminate her target.

In the main auditorium the audience views this interaction on large screens. They are an agency who has been tracking Mia and have intercepted her transmission. Using electronic keypads they must decide on key moments within the game directly affecting the success of Mia’s mission. Their choices make the difference between life and death, between winning and losing. This unique interaction means that each production is guaranteed to be different.

The production is the third ‘live video game’ produced by Block Stop and follows a similar format to their previous games (Dead Wait at Soho Theatre, July 2014 and Final Call at the Wellcome Collection, July 2015). However, it marks a significant change in Block Stop’s work moving from secret, one-on-one style interactions to auditorium-filling large-scale games.
