Alexei Othenin-Girard: Mystery Play

Watch and interact with a group of players as they explore an alternate world; one of intrigue, mystery, and Apocalypse.

Alexei Othenin-Girard

Mystery Play is an alternate reality game for three players, taking place both on and offline. It is a week-long experience, combining artistic elements, such as found sculpture and performance, with game elements like exploration and puzzle solving. Audience members observe the proceedings, watching and interacting with a group of players as they explore an alternate world; one of intrigue, mystery, and Apocalypse. The game examines the boundaries we draw between art, games, and life. By blurring those boundaries, Mystery Play lets its players find new ways of being, and new answers to some of our oldest questions.
