United Kingdom"as if it were the last time"
Imagine being inside a film, and it's happening on the streets around you..that's what a subtlemob is. You will download an MP3 and arrive at a secret location with a partner. At a specified time you both press play, as the soundtrack swells in your ears the people all around you create a cinema of everyday life. Listening to stories and instructions, it's an experience where you become both audience and performer.
