Notes on project AJI (part 2)

This is the sec­ond part of a post about AJI, a self-com­mis­­sioned research project about pub­lic protests. Read the first post or con­tin­ue read­ing below. Look­ing back on the talks we gave in the past few years, they’re obvi­ous­ly (and nat­u­ral­ly) prece­dents for what we’re doing with AJI now. I’m real­ly hap­py we’re return­ing to […]

Lessons from Knutepunkt 2013

Recent­ly I trav­eled to Nor­way. Not because they still had snow there, but because Knutepunkt 2013 was in the land of lakes, fjords and good fish. Knutepunkt is an event that is host­ed every year in a dif­fer­ent Nordic coun­try and serves as a get-togeth­­er for the Nordic larp scene, full of talks, work­shops, dis­cus­sions […]

Join us in Utrecht for FRIDAYS AT 7

So it’s time for a new thing, some­thing that will pos­si­bly turn into a irreg­u­lar­ly recur­ring get-togeth­­er for friends of the stu­dio. We’ve bor­rowed the name—FRIDAYS AT 7—from the drinks Urban­scale orga­nizes in NYC. With per­mis­sion, of course, as can be told from this exchange on Twit­ter: @kaeru Do what thou wilt shall be the […]

Play some of our fave games at Tweetakt

I’ve blogged about Twee­t­akt before but now that con­struc­tion of the fes­ti­val pavil­ion is hap­pen­ing out­side our stu­dio win­dows I feel I should post a reminder. So this Fri­day, Twee­t­akt Fes­ti­val opens. I’ve select­ed a num­ber of games that will be playable for free at the pavil­ion for the full 10 days of the fes­ti­val. […]

Looking back on playful Tweetakt 2011

I’ve just uploaded a set of pho­tos tak­en at the open­ing of the play­ful Twee­t­akt 2011 exhi­bi­tion. As you may recall, I was asked to curate an inter­ac­tive addi­tion to this youth the­atre fes­ti­val. The works I select­ed are in my opin­ion all won­der­ful exam­ples of the way play can lead to per­for­mance. Each was […]

Come over and play at Tweetakt

From my win­dow I can see guys build­ing the Twee­t­akt pavil­ion on the Neude square. They’ve start­ed today. Next week, the fes­ti­val starts. And I’m a lit­tle excit­ed because this year I was asked by Twee­t­akt to curate the inter­ac­tive exhi­bi­tion that will be on dis­play at the pavil­ion. Twee­t­akt is a fes­ti­val for per­form­ing […]

Looking back on a serious symposium

Last week the KNAW (Roy­al Dutch Acad­e­my of Sci­ence) orga­nized a sym­po­sium on seri­ous games. Some­thing we’re deal­ing with a lot right now, so we checked it out. Here’s some thoughts on what was talked about: David Shaf­fer was the first speak­er. He made an inter­est­ing point: In order to learn by play­ing, the play­er […]

Join us for a game of Bocce Drift

So we have five sets of boc­ce balls lying around (or jeu de boules, as we like to call the game in the Nether­lands). They’re left over from our lit­tle stint at NU Grounds. We were plan­ning to run Boc­ce Drift there, but did not get around to it. So let’s play it any­way, in […]

We played a mix of games designed by stu­dents of the Utrecht School of the Arts and games tak­en from the excel­lent Ludoc­i­ty web­site. […]
