asses.masses at Mayfest 2024

Watershed, Bristol

From: May 18th 2024

The unemployed donkeys have one demand: the humans must surrender their machines and give all donkeys their jobs back. But revolution is never easy!

asses.masses is a custom-made video game by Patrick Blenkarn and Milton Lim receiving its UK Premiere at Mayfest 2024 about labour, technophobia and sharing the load of revolution, designed to be played from beginning to end in a live theatre. This is gaming as performance; an immersive, cheeky and highly original work. Brave spectators take turns at the controller to lead the herd through a post-Industrial society, where asses are valued more for their hides than their potential.
