A real-time composition by daily objects and text by Martina Ruhsam und Annie Abrahams

besides, compressed by communication is a real-time composition in which daily objects interrelate in an interface that usually frames the heads of humans. Annie Abrahams and Martina Ruhsam communicate by juxtaposing and resituating objects and by reading a text that is recomposed during the course of the performance. Once again they investigate the performative potential of computer-mediated performance. By listening to each other’s gestures they choreograph each other despite being geographically far away from each other – Annie in Montpellier, Martina in Vienna.
