CHIMORONA is a processual online RPG video-theater that evolves with its collective decentralized performance played by 10 individuals and an audience. This project explores the emergence of social_design, social hierarchies and complex situations by giving each of the participants individual sets of rules and letting them interact between each other.
The Play takes place in a fictive support group for people who are together in a quarantine due to the covid-19 pandemic. Acts -1 and 0 are set in the past, while Act 1 is the fictive present and Act 2 the actual present. Through Act 0 and 1 the characters will try to achieve a mission given to them. 5 of the characters want to pursue collective goals, while the other half want to pursue individual goals; they shall never explicitly reveal this quest to the other participants. In Act 2 the participants will drop characters and engage in a personal discussion to collectively evaluate how the fictive community self_organized and which of the missions could be achieved by which costs.
The work of fiction should help to draw a semi-authentic cultural analysis of traumas-to-come and individualized reactions to the ongoing pandemic.
We will invite visitors of the Uroboros festival to play some characters. Each of the participants will receive a digital package containing the characteristics of the roles as well as the specific backgrounds and singular instructions.
