Three days long 5 artist will prepare and do a performance every day. They will use an interface that allows them to collaborate remotely. The images and sounds of their webcams are combined into a single video projection. From a distance, they share a space of expression and responsibility, a playground, a laboratory.
25 October 6pm GMT, online preparation session, open to all at huisclos.mosaika.tv
Using only their mother tongue the five artists will challenge each other into collective action while trying to overcome language and cultural differences. Their communication is handicapped by this constraint - which means they will have to invent a new language based on some common words, codes, the technical possibilities of streaming and their bodies.

Huis Clos / No Exit - On Translation is part of the Huis Clos / No Exit artistic research project by Annie Abrahams
