Table Games is an exhibition by Eva George Richardson McCrea and Nina Nadig.
Table Games (2021) is a 7 hour 1 minute film, which is the result of a live edited performance that was live streamed on the 17th April 2021.
In Table Games six characters sit around a table playing poker. They are playing for real money which the winner receives at the end of the performance. Each player has been given a score of gestures, sentences and actions that they activate over the course of the game. As the performance progresses the social dynamics and power relations between the cast begin to become apparent as arguments, laughter, tension and boredom dominate the atmosphere at different moments over the course of the performance. At times nothing happens, at times it seems as if something is about to happen and at times things do happen. The repetitive dealing of hands of poker underscores the action as the line between scripted performance, ad hoc improvisation and the personal motives and actions of the players becomes blurred.
The exhibition runs until the 23rd of April ~
Supported by the @artscouncilofireland
