Wrapping up a residency at TAG/Hexagram at Concordia University. This third collaboration between myself, Tony Higuchi, Dawn Hang Yue Wong, and Amanda Tom is a cynical take on Dance Dance Revolution.

Protest Protest Revolution is a multiplayer game influenced by our collective experiences as both participants and spectators in the Maple Spring in Quebec, the Indignado Movement in Spain, the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations in New York, and the Umbrella Revolution in Hong Kong. The incongruous elements of humor, violence, confusion, and collective action which find unlikely intersections during political protests are present in this cynical homage to Dance Dance Revolution. Players must use spray paint, bang casseroles, take photographs, use umbrellas, take down drones, and throw back tear gas grenades to achieve victory. Otherwise, it’s back to electoral politics.
