Premiered at Nakt Unfinished Festival, Hamburg, 29 March – 1 April 2013
Two persons perform two sequences of actions at the same time in two distant and qualitatively different places. The simultaneous actions carried out in each frame are connected by common themes materialized differently in each frame or, vice-versa, by common figures that embody a different theme in each frame – generating a game of resonances and out of syncs.
The two sequences and their respective audio tracks are recorded and become material for a video. In the video, the sequences are played sometimes in parallel, sometimes one at a time. The audio tracks of the sounds produced while performing the sequences are alternated or overlapped, highlighting a conversation of correspondences and contrasts between the two performances and settings. One sequence, alone, is opaque: it activates when paralleled to the other sequence.
A group of people will be asked to realize a video using the two sequences. The sequences will have to be laid out in the same way – the two footages will be placed one next to the other, at a set size. Within this set structure, that acts as the rule of the game, different versions will originate – each creating a different rhythmical interplay between the two audio + video tracks. From the same recorded events, a potentially endless number of readings will originate.
