Four performers, two from Liquid Architecture‘s Autotune Everything program, two from Firstdraft‘s Same Same program. Two plus two equals Same/Everything. These experimental projects explore consensus, standardisation, sameness and their opposites.

Johannes Kreidler: The more unmusical, the better.
A series of conceptual pieces for solo performer and video. Reality in music is the reality of music, concepts are dissonances for advanced listeners.
We are Duchampions.
Seth Kim-Cohen: The be in bathos equals the pee in pathos (except at the bathhouse)
Your body doesn’t behave. Doesn’t behave like someone else’s body appears to behave. Your body’s agency isn’t one with its effects like someone else’s always is. You can tell it what to do. But that’s not the same as telling what it does. You are, in this sense, like the manager of a wayward ward. You are dancing – your body and the body of your charge. Though you’re not in charge. Tell us what you plan to do before you go. We’ll be waiting.
(Something like a dance with appropriated video and narration in what appears to be someone else’s style, possibly 1975 (or 1978?), San Francisco).
