A performance that I imagine in my homeThe spectators are my neighbours.
The invitation is delivered directly to their doors. They are previously constellated, informed and invited to be part of the performance. Everyone must move one door away, maximum two. (How far is it not going?).
They are invited to dinner at their neighbour's house. However at your neighbour's house there is no one there. Only a pair of headphones and a set of instructions await to them, which will make them live their neighbour's life for an hour.
The creation of performative events that happen in people's own homes. This may involve an exterior team of performers entering a home, other audience members arriving, the addition of sound, light, objects, or simply adjustments or attention given to what is already there. It may be possible to use what is already there: electricity, water, windows, family members, kitchen utensils, ancestral memories, a Hi-Fi system, the darkness of a windowless toilet....
There are examples of artworks involving instructions which are perhaps only meant to be read or heard, the result of acting upon them left to your own imagination. Perhaps useful to remember: being given an instruction, being told to do something - this of course is real, and it has an effect, regardless of whether or not you carry it out.
Use of instructional material in the form of text, audio or visual guides to create a performance event where unrehearsed people perform the work. This can be done through various constellations of participation, eg. involving a solo audience creating a performance for itself, two audience members creating a performance for each other, a group involving collective participation, etc.
The unrehearsed performers can also be specifically invited or 'cast' individuals who perform in front of a conventional audience (the audience may or may not know the performers are unrehearsed.)
It can also be combined with rehearsed, predictable, or fixed elements (actors, the sunset, hungry birds, recorded material, etc).
