‘Life is a mystery
Everyone must stand alone’
Madonna
The Dating Project is a live interactive game, in which participants roleplay situations scripted from the narratives of everyday life, simply by following a series of instructions on their smartphones. Open to all, it is an attempt to bring total strangers together in situations of joy, play ,and 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.

The Dating Project is currently in a development phase. In the coming times, The Dating Project trial episodes will take place in the following locations:
  • a train station
  • a beach
  • a primary school
  • a bar
  • your own home
