THE DATING PROJECT is a live episodic game in which participants roleplay situations scripted from the narratives of everyday life, simply by following a series of video and written instructions on their smartphones. Open to all, it is an attempt to bring total strangers together in situations of joy, play, intimacy and togetherness in the spaces that they collectively inhabit, prompting them to playfully subvert rules and power structures at work in the everyday life of these places. In staging these encounters, which blur the line between fiction and reality through the means of roleplay, the project wishes to subtly offer a space for empathy and understanding within a universe of play.
