Jo SiMalaya Alcampo, Yumi Onose and Simon Rabyniuk perform on Friday and the next night they present a new work in response to the previous evening. This situation challenges the artists to work directly and immediately with site, a changing and repeating audience and to consider the impact and influence of working side by side over a duration of time. This project is also about the role of the audience in performance and visual art. Audiences are often understood as entities that are separate from the art work that they are experiencing, and this paradigm is quite strongly embedded in our ways both to produce and to receive art work.
"They see us. They perform in front of us. We see them perform. We see them. They feel us. They perform near us. We feel their work. We feel them. Something happens. Something goes through us. Something goes through them. They process the encounter. We process too. We eat. We sleep. We dream. We think. We all come back the next day. We see them.They see us. We see their response to the day before. We see more. Way more. We feel more. They feel more. Way more."
