Calling all sports enthusiasts! For three weeks this September, we will stage Rogue Game, a live exhibition that transports the architecture, tactics and actions of a multipurpose sports hall into Spike Island. This ongoing project by artist/architect collaboration Sophie Warren and Jonathan Mosley with Can Altay starts with a simple premise: the coloured lines of the courts are marked out in the gallery where three different games are played simultaneously in the same space.
We’re now looking for basketball, five-a-side football, volleyball and touch rugby players and teams of all skill levels to participate in the project. Rogue Game offers a new way of experiencing popular sports, challenging and heightening coordination, agility and negotiation skills. The overlapping of the games calls on players to rethink their moves and strategies in the face of ever-changing obstacles.
