text description

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.

Cultural anthropologist and performing artist Dániel Makkai and The Transforming Association (Átváltozó Egyesület) are currently working on an alternative proposal to their artistic project. 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.

The interview took place in October 2019 during an IN SITU Atelier in Terni (IT), hosted by IN SITU partner Indisciplinarte Terni.

Member of IN SITU since 2016

Indisciplinarte is a cultural organisation based in Terni, Italy. They are internationally active in arts management, cultural projects and creative production since 2005. 
They support the idea of art and creativity as driving forces for economical development and social change and growth.

Indisciplinarte launched the Terni Festival in 2006. Since its very first edition, Terni Festival has been working on public spaces, crossing the lines between audiences and performers through radical, site specific and engaging works. Openness, participation and listening have always been the driving track and the solid backbone of their identity.

In 10 years, Terni Festival has been acting as a crucial place for exchange and dissemination for Italian and international artists. It has positively affected the artistic scene through its support to young artists mobility, promotion of cross pollination, the making of new collaborations and a long-term mentoring. Those objectives have been pursued through new forms of artistic residency and production. The program presents national and international artists active in the field of dance, performing and visual Art.
