A Game Of You (Ontroerend Goed)

A Game Of You

If you have plans to see ‘A Game of You,’ stop reading now: this tricksy little show functions best if you go in blind. Technically the final part of a trilogy by provocative Belgian collective Ontoerend Goed, it’s a theatrical experiment that turns each ticket holder into both the watcher and the watched. You’re led, one by one, through heavy red curtains into a series of cramped rooms. As quickly becomes clear, this is a house of (two-way) mirrors. You’ll meet a few people, and you’ll have a few puzzling conversations. It’s a disquieting, strange experience that asks you to examine how you see strangers – and how they might see you. Some people will adore it. Others will want to flee.

Traverse Theatre, until 30 Aug.
