The fusion of “game theory” (a mathematical attempt to pre­dict human behaviour) and the dramaturgical development in computer games in the last decade, is the conceptual and visual frame of this performance for 4 dancers and an interacting video scenography.

With graphics and choreogra­phy inspired by the totalitarian collectivism in games like “Lem­ming’s” to the anarchistic indi­vidualism in “GTA”, “Fuck you Buddy” is a performance for the sake of the game, a game about winning at any cost and about being born inherently selfish…..or?
