Ant Hampton & Christophe Meierhans (Brussels/Geneva/London)
The Thing – an Automatic Workshop
If the principle of direct action is «the defiant insistence on acting as if one is already free», (and if we accept an idea of freedom which relates to other people) can we imagine how that «free» version of ourselves would behave? During four four-hour episodes, an experience unfolds which continually works on two levels as a performance and as a workshop.
