Experience a ‘Live Video Game’: a video game performed by actors, live-streamed to theatres in real-time. Assassin Mia Culper is guided through her mission by an audience member, while the rest of the audience uses electronic keypads to decide on key moments within the game. With new player interactions every night, no two productions will be the same.
Block Stop are creating an even closer bond between audience and actor.
“It’s an audacious concept and it worked extraordinarily well”
“It’s streamlined, it’s technical, it’s fantastically unique”
“Block Stop are definitely ones to keep an eye on.”
By the End of Us follows assassin Mia Culper who, prepped with a camera and microphone, live-streams a first person point of view to her Contact. The Contact is an audience member, or rather Player, who sits in a private room at Theatre Delicatessen. Placed in front of a monitor and wearing a headset the Player communicates with Mia and guides her through the mission to eliminate her target.
Meanwhile, in the main auditorium, an audience views this interaction on large screens. Equipped with electronic keypads and a mission of their own, 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 follows on from the success of Block Stop’s previous games (Dead Wait at Soho Theatre and Pleasance Theatre July 2014, Final Call at the Wellcome Collection July 2015, and Counter Call at the VAULT Festival February/March 2016) and builds upon its previous and much praised run at the Southwark Playhouse in November 2015.
