Abstract
New Societies is an interactive theatrical experience playing a strategic board game. Seated at tables from 4 to 6 guests, players compete against or collaborate with each other in order to build their ideal society. Facilitated by a cast of eleven performers, one seated at each table and three in the centre of the room, the players propel the main movement of the performance. Echoing the politics and systemic issues we face in contemporary societies, players must navigate difficult decisions as their divisions progress. Players can either choose to build their societies as Empires or Utopias but each decision the player makes will influence how all the other guests can play. New Societies is a playful challenge to reflect on how we operate as inheritors of our current societal structures and act potential catalysts for newer and better ones.
