A Conversation About the Making of Addressless

An interactive theatrical game about housing insecurity

Tuesday 11 January 2022

Rattlestick and Center for International Theatre Development presented a conversation about the making of Addressless livestreaming on the global, commons-based peer produced HowlRound TV network Tuesday 11 January 2022 at 12 p.m. PST (Los Angeles, UTC -8) / 2 p.m. CST (Chicago, UTC -6) / 3 p.m. EST (New York, UTC -5) / 20:00 GMT (London, UTC +0) / 21:00 CET (Budapest, UTC +1).

Join Hungarian director Martin Boross, American playwright Jonathan Payne, and Rattlestick Artistic Director Daniella Topol for an in-depth conversation about the making of Addressless, an interactive theatrical game about housing insecurity, which begins virtual performances at Rattlestick (New York City) on 13 January 2022. This discussion will be facilitated by Philip Arnoult, Founder/Director of the Center for International Theatre Development.

Addressless is an interactive, “choose your own adventure” virtual theatrical game in which audiences encounter firsthand the complex challenges of homelessness. Much like in “Dungeons and Dragons” or other role playing games, audiences are asked to follow a character and make a series of decisions over the course of the game, such as: Will their character sleep on the street or sleep in a hostel? Will they ask people for money or try to find work? While some decisions might earn the character money, they may also take a toll on their life expectancy and physical wellbeing.

Addressless speaks to the growing issue of homelessness in New York, while aiming to shift conversations around homelessness, promote a deeper understanding of the difficulties faced by those living without a fixed address, and fight against harmful prejudices that make coexistence difficult.
