Perform! is a re-enactment game devoted to performative art.
With its playful, light-hearted approach Perform! aims to gain and spread appreciation for performance and its chief protagonists.
The game, conceived and created by artist Hannes Egger and curator Denis Isaia with the technical support of Centrale Fies uses a pack of 40 cards with each card referencing a specific Performance piece and an instruction to be carried out by the players. Each card is illustrated with a drawing of the work by Hannes Egger.
The game includes works of Marina Abramovic, Tino Sehgal, Allan Kaprow, Orlan and Joseph Beuys amongst others.
The game requires all participants to take turns performing, and when not performing, to judge other people’s performances. The objective is to arrive at a winning performer: the one with the highest score at the end of the game.
