International Street Games Festival
17-19 June 2011 – HAU2, Berlin

Cowgirls, penguins and space travel at Mehringplatz! Gentrification as
gameification! Alternate universes, dancing patrols and adventures in
absolutely stunning life-like graphics…

Inspired by festivals such as Come Out&  Play (New York), Hide&  Seek
Weekender(London), and igFest (Bristol), You Are GO! brings to Berlin a
postdigital play culture that installs games not in virtual environments but
on the platforms of everyday. With smartphones and walkie-talkies, with chalk
and ballons, with crazy fictions and bodies in urban space. You Are GO!
introduces the most important creaters and the some of best games in this
vibrant international scene for the first time in Germany and opens up the
dialoge with local players and designers.

During three utopian days in Summer, the theater turns into an HQ for
gameplay, from which small and large groups head out onto the surrounding
playing fields. Festival highlights are games like „Shadowplay“ from
Gigantic Mechanic (New York), „Stag Hunt“ from Hide&  Seek (London),
„Gentrification“ from Athmosphere Industries (Toronto), „The ONE“ by
Catherine Herdlick and Gabe Smedresman (San Francisco), „15.000 Gray“
from machina eX and „Asteroids!“ with the Andromeda Mega Express

Festival Programme:
Fr 17 June 5-10pm – Games on Friday
Sa 18 Juni 3-12pm – Games on Saturday
So 19 Juni 2-8pm – Games on Sunday

Important: There can still be some changes to the programme during the next
days. More details on games and designers will be added shortly.

Day tickets are 5€ (8€ if you’d like a spot in 15.000 Gray) and
festival-passes cost 12€ (15€ with 15.000 Gray). Get your tickets at the
HAU-Ticket Office!
