Annie and Martina will investigate the performative potential of real time computer-mediated communication. By listening to each other's gestures (in a visual and acoustic sense) they will choreograph each other's actions, despite Annie being in Montpellier, France and Martina being in Berlin, Germany. Will they be able to create an intimate space within two webcam windows framed side-by-side on their screens? What will emerge when two vulnerable bodies, their silences, fragmented communication, a few mundane objects, and a lot of uncertainty collide?
