About A Game Of You:

A Game Of You is a one-on-one labyrinth of mirrors and projections. A single visitor is guided through rooms and corridors, where he meets both real and virtual people who gradually create character out of him or her, based on the projections of others as well as their own. It's about the subjectivity of self image and how the world is a projection of our own experience.

"A Game of You walks you inside an infinity triangle. Everywhere you look there's an image of yourself reflected back." -- Caroussel of Fantasies

Through a journey along several cabins, visitor becomes his own avatar in some sort of theatrical computer game in which this mostly secret compartment - the space between your external mirror image and your inner self-image - functions as performance space. It turns 'A Game of You' into a game of mirroring and being mirrored. Visitor only realise how ingenious the construction of the performance is when, at the end, it becomes clear that this show is in fact exclusively made by the visitor as a participating audience.

"WOW!!! ...a performing art at its finest...while still providing real entertainment." -- Adelaide Theatre Guide, Australia

A Game Of You provides closure for what one critic called "a trilogy of self-knowledge" by raising the essential question: who am I?
