Twist and Shout

By: Hila Grgory Meinrat and Talia Nirgad Hasson

Thin walls separate near-identical houses with near-identical families eating near-identical dinners. Smile. Eat your vegetables. Don’t raise your voice. And whatever you do, don’t let them hear the music. What would the neighbours say? An optimistic game about freedom and oppression in a society where parties are forbidden.

The game moves between realistic drama of a family dinner in near-future dystopian suburbs, and the surrealistic wild world of dance parties. Players will go between their role as a father, a mother, a son or a daughter, and the manifestation of their inner desires, expressed through movement, touch and colour.

  • Dancing, party, oppression, expression, freedom, family
