The pair will perform on Friday, April 13 at 21c Museum Hotel Bentonville. The performance started in 2015 with a memory turned into a poem. Now the artists are working in the challenges that physical distance bring to us. The performance questions the rigidity of borders and it embodies the deep listening of affects as a way of braking distance and strengthen memory in an organic way. How close is a body in the other side of the screen? How do we build memory in an ever-changing space? The public is invited to be part of a poetic (re)encounter.
