GUN PLAY: THE WORLD'S FIRST LIVE-ACTION VIDEO GAME

Genre:
conceived and directed by Brian Rogers

GUN PLAY is a celebration of firearms as they are represented in American popular culture. Drawing parallels between real violence and imagined violence, the performance will recreate the world of 3-D first-person-shooter videogames on stage while integrating videogame footage using high-tech video and computers. The audience, wearing headphones (Quake Convention style), watch the gun and gamer world come to life with an all-star cast of real-life gun relevant personalities like Hunter S. Thompson, Ted Nugent, William S. Burroughs and John Carmack (the guy who made Doom & Quake who is personally responsible for major advances in 3d graphics), et al. The cast plays videogames, manipulate realistic weaponry, and step into the shoes of real life personalities.
