Flux Factory presents iSpy, a participatory conceptual game show that brings together live streaming video, consenting audiences, and unsuspecting participants for a rollicking good time through the misuse of surveillance.

Come ready to team up and win subversive challenges involving live aerial surveillance, piñatas, World of Warcraft, and many more surprises. Each night, two featured players carry networked cameras in public space, beaming video back to the Flux gallery-turned-game show studio where they coordinate with the rest of their team to score more points. The team with the highest score wins a rare and special prize…

The show is totally free and runs only four times, beginning promptly at 6pm and followed by an after party each night.

iSpy includes games and concepts from Angela Washko, Clay Ewing, Flux Factory, Matt Parker, Meg Keys, Mike Kelly, Mike Lacher & Mikala Bierma, Leif Percifield, and Liz Barry; emceed by Matt Levy and Keith Haskel; production design by Lena Hawkins, Christopher van Doren & Alison Nguyen; sound design by Collapsed Wave Media with Nick Cregor; tech design by Grant McDonald; produced by Jason Eppink & Mike Kelly.
