Any malfunctioning will be part of the game and must be assumed, never panic.
Nothing can go wrong, all is permitted, we can play but we don’t have to – silence is beautiful.
Huis Clos / No Exit – On Translation is part of the Huis Clos / No Exit artistic research project by Annie Abrahams
Special thanks for this performance to Amsterdam Fund for the Arts and the Région Languedoc Roussillon.
Shifts, interruptions, cuts, flux variations, temporary vacuums and coding errors in and between the images, are the aesthetic materials of the performance that will translate our vulnerability in our attempts to communicate in a cyberized environment.
