Echoes 2017

The Contract: Venice Agenda 2017
Echoes took place for three days of preview for Venice Biennale 2017

Echoes is a relay of one person’s protest, realised through individual performances testifying to the idea of equality through individually different ways of expression. The project becomes a collection of performances by anonymous participants conducting their individual performances in public places.

The entire process of organising/realising the performance relies on web communication
in order to build trust within a group and to express a resistance towards hierarchical legitimacy that support discrimination.

All the performers listen to the original soundtrack made by the artist and produce/improvise their own performance according to this. The soundtrack is not exposed to the audience, but it functions as an invisible conductor.

[The original soundtrack is an edited collection of sounds/recordings reflecting the current socio-political status quo]
