*The Love Parade the game*

The Love Parade the game!

Recruit girl/guy partner...
Get intoxicated..
Dance down the embarcadero…
Cross the draw bridge…
Regroup with that special some one once inside the cage at the end of the parade…
Initiate the game by kissing your partner(as long as you want)…
Accumulate points by successfully dancing and kissing as many other partners possible before parade is dispersed…
Game is lost if player does not end up sleeping with original partner…

This is a site specific game and relies on trust and the honor system.

Hi Elliot-- interesting that you should write about the participating in the Love Parade as a kind of site-specific game! (interesting metaphor for the experience, although it's cheating a bit on the assignment since I doubt anyone was actually playing this "game" as a literal game. But, as I said, good as a metaphor for the social interaction...) My only previous experience with the LP is in Berlin, where it previously has been conducted each year... if you wanted to do a meatier analysis of the site-specificness of your participation in the LP, would be interesting to consider how the landscape, the natural and built environment of San Francisco as well as the culture/context, would affect the LP in comparison to Berlin or anywhere else, really. I didn't go this year so I can't observe this directly...
