What's it about?
A cross between a game and a theatrical performance, The Money plays out in Hull’s historic centre of power, the Guildhall. Choose to be a Player, Silent Witness, or a Voyeur.
Become a Player by donating as much as you can. Work with other Players to decide what to spend the group’s money on. You have one hour to come to a decision. If you don’t decide unanimously in the allotted time, you relinquish your privilege to spend the money and the money rolls over to the next group of Players.
Silent Witnesses watch as the group of Players attempt to decide how to spend the money. If you want to voice your opinion you can buy your way in and become a Player.
Voyeurs simply watch the debate unfold.
The playful premise of Kaleider’s renowned work sets the stage for one of the most memorable conversations you’ll ever have or witness, as altruism butts heads with personal interests, personalities clash and hierarchies are upended.
“This deceptively simple piece is definitely on The Money. It turns conversation into urgent, playful theatre.” Lyn Gardner, The Guardian.
