covidiale - the game show

Performance at Offener Kanal Europa, Berlin, May 2020
Concept, performance: the Only Game in Town (Louise Pons & Mirjam Schaal)

Public Access TV Offener Kanal Europa hosted the Only Game in Town’s Game Show “Covidiale” in which participants could catharize their hate towards newborn SARS-CoV-2 by beating the shit out of a virus-shaped piñata. This ritual included dressing up as a medieval wrestling character of the participant’s choice - Mystique, Hermann The German, die Kugelstoßerin, der Labyrinth-Mann and the Flea. The game is online on OKE’s website.
