Apocalypse Training – a gentle but brave approach to the unknown
The Apocalypse Training project is a cooperative adventure game for kids and adults. Everyone can imagine how our civilization is going to collapse. We have many different visions of the collapse of society and the global environment. Visions of the Apocalypse and of our survival reactions both reflect our relationship to the present social and physical reality. These imaginary patterns are evoked and transcribed by the Apocalypse Training.
The artists are currently working on an alternative proposal to their artistic project Apocalypse Training. The project is conceived originally as a site-specific experience that offers a playful encounter with our innermost fears. Dániel Makkai and The Transforming Association have been developing Apocalypse Hotline, a storytelling game which unfolds over a phone call. The proposal is similar to a tabletop role-playing game or an interactive radio play. More to come soon.
