Four performers, each from its own webcam station execute a performance protocol. The images and sounds of their webcams are brought together in one video projection. From their isolated positions, scattered in space, they share a space of expression and responsibility, a playground, a laboratory. They create on the fly, watched by the public a contemporary narrative on the possibility of being and acting together.
