Performer and audience communicate via the few openings of the wall. Between them, there’s no possibility of eye contact neither verbal communication. Yet, the only chance of contact, through touch, opens up a dimension of interaction.
The performance investigates the limits of public engagement, by creating a stage where members of the audience negotiate their actions with the bare hands of an invisible performer. The physical contact is deliberately decided by the public, since the performer doesn’t see, neither hear, therefore unable to control the situation.
