Come and help us lift the Palacio de la Moneda and move it 4.6 km. We will pause in front of major monuments en route: The O’Higgins Park, República 517 (the CNI headquarters where people were tortured and held), the former headquarters of the Unión de Trabajadores Ferroviarios (the starting point for Luis Emilio Recabarren’s funeral [...]

Some days ago we were talking to Mar Canet and Varvara Gurjevaabout our forthcoming projects. Later that night Mar sent me this link. It is a simulation of a mosh pit. Moshes, like pogos, are ostensibly chaotic dances that emerge from the crowd at hardcore concerts and the like. I say “ostensibly” because this chaos is actually governed by a [...]

Photo of Paradise Now at Space Electronic, Florence, 1969
All of Living Theatre’s work before 1968 seems to be leading up to Paradise Now. And all their later work appears to be heading away from it. I never tire of watching the film clips of that show. There are several clips included in the documentary Signals [...]

Re-enactment is common in the theatre. Rimini Protokoll’s Deutschland 2 and Massimo Furlan’s Foot are two appealing projects from 2002 that use the same strategy. In the first, 200 spectators reproduce a parliamentary session in real time (at the same time that it is taking place in Berlin) and, in the second, Massimo Furlan reproduces [...]

On 16 January 2013 Bitnik sent a parcel to Julian Assange, holed up at the Ecuadorian embassy in London. The parcel was fitted with an IP camera that filmed the journey (1 image every 10 seconds) to its destination. The parcel was also geotracked so it could be followed on a map whenever the camera [...]

As you enter the theatre, instead of the stalls there is a tier covered with mattresses and cushions. You’re invited to make yourself comfortable. On stage, dancer and co-author of the piece Alix Eynaudi tells you what is going to happen. First there will be a video talking about sleep; later Alix will come on [...]
