General recommendation:
*please see attachment for the rules of the game.

  • The rules have been made to get us going.
  • The rules can be dropped the moment the situation created becomes interesting.
  • The rules can always be broken.
  • We can breathe. It can breathe. (How to keep it simple. How to keep it participatory.)
  • The game happens in space shared between us
  • Stay attentive of this dynamic: make space, take space.


(structure) (preparation) alarm <> experience (community) (relationship)



  • intro + map gazing
  • chapter 1: (ongoing, self-reflective, collecting)
    what “questions” do you have relative to the map? “Questions” can be “written” as statements. “Writing” can be done in movement, or drawing.
  • chapter 2: (ongoing, self-reflective)
    what feelings do the questions inspire or provoke?
  • Chapter 3: (reporting, sharing, relating)
    What would you like to share? What would you like to make? (sharing as a creative act)
  • Chapter 4: (partially self-reflective and relating)
    What would you like to keep? Or: what have you already kept? remember?
  • post - game "time for something experiential"




complementary documentation

  1. Silly rules.
  2. Silence is a blessing: abrupt silence (should) happen.
  3. Silence happens after it’s already happening; the moment of realisation.
  4. Personal stories of experience as well as theoretical references.
  5. Changing the subject is okay: abrupt change of topic should happen.
  6. Abrupt choreographic act.
  7. Recognise that new rules might emerge in real time.
  8. Support each other’s freedom.
  9. The example of kimchi pizza.
  10. What is the equivalent to preheating the oven: how is trust or the experience of commonality established? Is it a matter of introduction, what we start with, or gathered experience? (prepare, assemble elements, bake, eat, digest)
  11. Keep an organ in mind.
  12. Bring a cup.
  13. Laughter is mandatory.
  14. Language. Translation. To be understood. To choose to not speak English. To dear to not speak English. To dare to speak in your mother tongue. To not assume that you’re expected to speak English. To hear a foreign language. (the many languages include the non-verbal!)
  15. To remember to feel. Is feeling (oneself) a possible strategy for meeting the unfamiliar, the unknown?
  16. Participating with visuals, not only sound.
  17. Reporting on what you connect to as you connect to it (something you see, something you heard): acknowledging each other’s spaces.
  18. Acknowledging the spacing of the screen.
  19. Passing (intention) brings attention.
  20. How to choose speaker view over gallery view: do we ever change together?
  21. Checking in as on Tuesday but with art.
  22. Wear something that reminds you of a tablecloth. (llama)
