You Say Tomato, I Say Tomato brings together a collection of 21 local and international artists and poets investigating the nature of linguistic disagreements.

 

"... we explicitly challenge one another. We push each other towards new terrains, and into unknown, unrehearsed actions. We did not aim to produce an intimate encounter for this work, but the fact that we enter unknown realms makes it intimate because we cannot control the image of ourselves that we broadcast to the public. For this performance we both accept a discomforting prerequisite: something that we don't want others to know about us, something secret, will, no doubt, escape. The moment this condition of discomfort suddenly and unexpectedly occurs is maybe one of the most intimate moments one can share: when a secret escapes during a performance, the minute it reveals itself to us and to our observers, this secret cannot but be unstaged. It is a moment of nakedness within the performance."
Annie Abrahams on "A Meeting is a Meeting is a Meeting" in "Allergic to Utopias", interview for Digimag 58, October 2010 by Maria Chatzichristodoulou.

Shifts, interruptions, cuts, flux variations, temporary vacuums and coding errors in and between the images and the sounds, are the aesthetic materials of these performance that will translate the possibilities and the limits of our communication in a cyberized environment. Failure doesn't exist.
A Meeting is a Meeting is a Meeting is the first in a series of Conversations between Antye Greie (aka AGF) and Annie Abrahams
