THE CRITICS, 2017, MINSK, BELARUS
Play "The Critics" is an interactive art experiment on the verge of larp and theatre, combining the traditional form of the performance and the role-playing game of live action. Spectators are direct participants in the performance, who have their own tasks. In some ways, a larp performance can resemble a happening or an immersive performance.
The theme of the performance is subjective and objective in art, a paradigm shift in the perception of expert opinion by society. The performance removes the wall between the actors and the audience, the participants are in a constant process of influencing each other. People sitting in the hall cease to be observers and become full participants in the performance.
Another feature of the larp performance is that it does not have a rigidly prescribed script, everything happens here and now. And the outcome of the performance depends both on the choice of the actor, and on the degree of influence on them from the audience.
