Video Game Performance Art


Video games may or may not be capable of being art, but the Game Play Festival currently running at the Brick Theater in Williamsburg, Brooklyn is making some great art out of video games.  Reimagine Donkey Kong as an abusive boyfriend, watch Mario and Luigi hallucinate giant turtles and evil plants while high on shrooms, and witness the spectacle that is "Grand Theft Ovid."  Four different transmedial pieces are running at the theater through July 25th.

I just recently heard about this and it sounds very interesting. I'm curious to see how they used Grand Theft Auto as that's not the first game I would choose if I were making a play.
