A flat filled with dozens of people, drinks, food, music… and then what? YKON invites you to play and experiment with the conventions of social interaction. This evening will show whether simple, low-tech game mechanics can radically alter how people relate to each other.

Welcome to the suspension, deconstruction and general messing around and reconfiguration with social interactions. Welcome to a collective journey to something else than party as usual. Welcome to Play House!
