Here we are again – at least for now on your screens! Like everyone else in these times of the current lockdown, we are staying at home.
But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t anything cooking!
Kilian and Meret are part of the artistic collaboration Total International (Local) over distance with the two artists Andreas Liebmann and Boaz Barkan in Copenhagen. Last autumn we already started to address the topic of ecological production conditions of artistic work, a topic that is rarely addressed. Artists take it for granted to fly around, to guest performances and residencies. How can we change this and achieve interesting artistic results? First rules: No flying. Every performance takes place simultaneously in both countries.
And now reality called Lockdown has caught up with us with relevance nobody could have foreseen.
Nobody can participate in our planned actions at the moment, but we can make parts of our practice accessible to you.
Here for the time being a Corona consolation video.
On April 25 at 4 pm the second discovery due to Corona exceptionally available as an online performance: Four artists in three countries on one screen.
You can find the live stream of the performance on these pages:
You can also watch the performance on zoom and afterward, everybody can join the discussion. To do this you need to download the zoom app.
Meeting ID: 867-1304-7897
For the duration of the performance, you can only see the performers’ videos.
After the performance participants are invited and will be able to contribute and take part in the discussion. We look forward to seeing lots of digital faces!
And one day, who knows when we will simultaneously be present in Zurich and Copenhagen. How is that possible? At the moment it is still our secret!
Finally, the research will result in a full-length piece that will be performed at the Tanzhaus Zurich in 2021.
Stay healthy, in good spirits, and curious!
