The Dating Project
The Dating Project: What is Love? is a live episodic game, in which participants roleplay situations scripted from the narratives of everyday life by following a series of video and written instructions on their smartphones. 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. For EUROPALIA TRAINS & TRACKS, two new episodes will be created, at Brussels Central Station – in coproduction with Bozar – and at Antwerp Central Station – in coproduction with Monty.

When you arrive, go to the Main Hall of Brussels Central Station. There will be a person in a pink wig waiting to welcome you and direct you to the starting point. Once there, you will get a phone with instructions for the game. Please arrive on time. If you are late, you will not be able to join! If you cannot find us, or are not going to arrive on time, please let us know via this number: +32479499946.
The performance is mainly in English and is interactive, which means as a participant you will physically move. It is also important to know that smartphones are provided for the performance. For this you will need an identity document which you will be required to hand over temporarily. If possible, please also bring your own wired headphones or wired earphones.
