An Operagame is a game that encourages community-building and stimulates the creative self through an active-listening environment. The Cafeteria Operagame - ALICE was played by more than 500 people in the 3 cafeterias of the 3 arts academies (premiered in 2014 at the KUVE - The Theater Academy, TIAM - The Fine Arts Academy and SIBA - The Sibelius Academy of Music).
Playing the Operagame composed a community and planted the seeds for greater future interdisciplinary community collaborations. The game was played by students, faculty members, cafeteria employees as well as cleaning personnel and random people passing by. It was a spectacle of human creativity at its best.
