NEW SOCIETIES

 creator + performer 

Create your ideal society in a mega-game of collaboration, competition, and potential Utopia. New Societies is an immersive interactive theatrical experience playing a strategic board game. Players are seated at tables up to 6 players and compete against or collaborate with each other in order to build their ideal society. A playful challenge to reflect on how we operate as inheritors of our current society and act potential catalysts for newer and better ones.
