Note: The interactive video game experience does not require any prior computer (game) skills. Several participants operate the video game simultaneously using different controllers. Operating the individual controllers requires different motor skills (e.g. touching surfaces or balance). It is up to the participants to decide which controller to use. Sound accompanies the gameplay and can become loud at times. The visual stimuli can become intense. More details on possible triggers and potential barriers will be published on the Mousonturm website in due course.

Caroline Creutzburg is a master of fantasy. Her explorations of biographical and historical contexts drift gently into playful and freely invented worlds, always with affectionate humour towards her characters, a fine sense of the profundity of apparent mundanities and curious towards the possibilities of new technologies. “Muscles with Three Women” invites the audience to a multiplayer video game installation that enters the animated worlds of three women who could not be more different: a heroine, a monster and a comedian. Each of them has her own movements and needs. The three women, their respective worlds and the audience are interlocked, interacting via extraordinary joysticks and sensors in the space. This way, the audience can try to steer the destinies of the three women anew every evening – even without prior computer (game) skills.
