Instant Urban Remote Performance
To everybody who is interested in being part of a lively street-art-project and performance.

Up to 55 participants are directed and synchronized via wireless intercom (in English language), moving from one place to the other in Istanbul . The guides and directors of the performance are Christian Kuntner, Astride Schlaefli and Martin Schick from Switzerland.

Their goal is to perceive the motion flow in public places, directly analyze it and use it in its spontaneous evaluation via performance elements. Through direct control of the actions, we influence the flow of normality, deflect it, bring it to a standstill, or speed it up. Our intervention is subtle; it gives the place a slight temporary stir that can be mysterious, eerie, or funny.
REMOTE CITIZEN uses controlled intervention in crowded places to intensify, break, or reduce to absurdity any predominant dynamics. In this way, reality and staging seamlessly blend into each other.

All information, related to this project as well as short documentation of the shows are presented on our website:
