Borrowing elements from role-playing and escape rooms, Job is an online game performance in which you are remotely commanding a live avatar. The performance unfolds as a puzzle-solving narrative, located in the storage and technical rooms of Kaaitheater. Job explores the possibility of an avatar to ‘prefer not to’ follow your commands, and addresses the difficulty artists face towards the demand for increasing production and efficiency.
