1st Episode OUT! The Real Games (Los juegos de verdad/I giochi veri)

Performance Games for Everyday Life

In collaboration w/Radio Relativa

The real games (los juegos de verdad/i giochi veri) is a radio-dance/drama and a podcast that instead of being listened to is designed to be done. The podcast contains 21 real games, 21 audio-based dance scores and theatre games each to be performed in connection to a different everyday task. You can do the real games’ performances at home by following the step-by-step audio-instructions in real time while doing a daily activity. Like meditations in movement, you can enjoy the real games only by listening, also imagining or actively dancing. You can do the performances alone or accompanied. Here, now, or later. This 21-games challenge is created to add a spark of imagination to your daily routine, and it can lead to unexpected results…

Original idea, texts, voice: Nicoletta Cappello Sound concept, composition and performance: Francesco Frasca


We will present a communication about the project at the "INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS THE INTERMEDIA SCENE. Immersivity, interactivity and technology on the scene of the 21st century" at Complutense University in Madrid, Faculty of Filology, the 29th and 30th of January 2024. JOIN!
