I do not know whom they contacted but the following performance which might be of interest to you as much as I undertstand from your work is going take place in istanbul; unfortunatelly later than you leave but have a look at it in any case; I am also quite busy these days ubt the next time you are in town perhaps I can help with more info face-to-face! REMOTE CITIZEN IN ISTANBUL – OCTOBER THE 15TH, 2011
Instant Urban Remote Performance


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

Summary:
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:  http://www.remote-citizen.ch

In 2010, this performance successfully took place in 11 towns in. Following the successful performances in 11 towns of both Switzerland and Germany in 2010, the show is invited to perform in Istanbul, Yerevan, Minsk and Marseille in the autumn of 2011.

cheers, 

ayse

Hi Melanie,

Thanks for posting a blog. I just edited it so that is has an excerpt from the interview and then a link that says read more. This kind of blog will drive more traffic to your offsite content. Usually when one only posts a link, there aren't many hits to your site. I hope this helps. I also featured it on here and facebook (coming up today)
