Welcome to INSTANT WARNET: a live-action role-playing game which pokes and prods at networks of harassment on social media. In this collective performance, you are invited to assume fictional characters on the massively multiplayer arena of Instagram, with the goal of disrupting and defusing some of its more hostile practices and spaces.

Composed entirely of found tactics, scenarios and language used by the most cunning trolls, buzzers and campaign operatives, INSTANT WARNET is an experiment which aims to turn the tables on online toxicity.
