12-hour online event organized by Christof Migone.


First in a series of twelve annual events taking place on December 12 from noon to midnight GMT (7-7 EST, 5-5 CST, 4-4 PST). Each year the event will move through each word of the 12-word phrase you and I are water earth fire air of life and death and activate the word of the year in myriad ways.


This year it all starts with you-. It always starts with you-.


All participants were invited to programme one hour with you- as the sole prompt. The result could be a mix of live and recorded (or entirely one or the other). There could be a visual element throughout, or partial, or none at all. An open structure welcoming coherent incoherence (or, incoherent coherence). A radio-but-not-really-radio event where you and you and you share the same nonplace.


YOU- HOUR 11 (22-23 GMT) (17-18 EST) (15-16 CST) (14-15 PST)

you think to appear/when you begin to appear/you begin to appear/when you think to begin/


A lost space that leads nowhere. Restless and confined. Disembodied and embodied presences roam, taunt, multiply and echo each other across planes.


Dana Gingras/Animals of Distinction. Choreographer, filmmaker, performer and artistic director of AOD. Founded in 2006 the company functions as a type of framework for contemporary practice, as a point of intersection where the social kinaesthetic, and the possibilities of physical thinking can be visualized in choreographic ideas with different collaborations and with other art forms.


Tot Onyx. New solo project of Japanese duo group A’s Tommi Tokyo. Formed in 2012, group A has explored the possibilities in breaking the preconceptions of live performance, attempted to subvert the boundary between musical performance and performance art incorporating use of the body, live-painting, noise, acoustics, and poetry in their formative performances. Frequent collaborations with visual artists, dancers, and scenographers of different practices is one of the crucial processes in her experimentation both of sound and performance.


Sonya Stefan. Independent Media and Dance Artist. Interests are Trash Aesthetics, Shifting Trees and Bodies that escape their realm. Collaborations with a variety of artists in dance, music and visual arts, as well as community-based projects, combining her love of fragmentation and suspension with that of togetherness.
