GAMES PEOPLE PLAY
Artist/Company: Mark Metaphor
What can James Bond’s casino strategies teach us about maths & psychology? What matters more, skill or strategy? Who would win in a fight between Muhammad Ali & ROCKY? How can a beaten brain outwit brawn? A mathematical multimedia lecture cracking the human Game Theory codes behind the best sporting moments of our species & cinema's greatest games.
A semi-sequel companion piece to last year's GUNSLINGING GAME THEORY, which studied the psychology & mathematics behind the Mexican standoffs of Clint Eastwood's spaghetti westerns. Even if you've never heard of statistical Game Theory or Behavioural Economics, bring your human-all-too-human curiosity about our so-called 'human nature' as we ask what cards, chess, football, basketball, boxing, baseball, billiards & dice can teach us about the games we play with each other, and ourselves, every single day.
