In 'Powerplays' political figures negotiate during a game of minimal physical ability and maximal conversational capacity: golf.
Over the course of 9 holes look-alike actors conduct informed improvisation in order to consider new modes of political discussion that might elicit progressive changes in society.
The full ~15 minute film was shown during The Royal College of Art's graduate degree show at Kensington Gore in London, and published by LS:N Global and The Future Laboratory.
