12:00 - Mario Mu: Confessional Stage Diving Workshop
Confessional stage diving is a live action role playing game. All participants exchange different characters while throwing themselves from the stage directly into the audience and experiencing a minor crowd surfing moment. It is a collaborative effort of exploring topics of confessions, outing, gossips and crowd sourcing. The game is driven by series of stories which unfold spontaneously through interaction with the environment. By confessing secrets to others, all players involved are co-creating a body of informations which happens to have an autonomous life of its own.
