Participatory performance: The intention is to activate the audience; make them collaborate, play, interact and perform with each other and the dancers.
Inspired by the game Mikado* a similar game is created by replacing the sticks with dancers. The audience is divided in two teams and invited to compete with each other. The game is about dancing and scoring dancers: one at a time and gather points for your team.
* Mikado is a pick-up sticks game. The sticks are bundled and taken in one hand that touches the table. The release creates a circular jumble. Now one stick after another should be taken up without touching others. On a fault the turn ends The next player bundles and drops the sticks again. After several rounds, normally five, the one with the highest score is the winner.
