REMOTE CITIZEN is for the very first time in NEW YORK, MANHATTAN

Join this unique art performance in public space as active participant !
No special skills required !
Everybody has a chance to participate on a first come first serve basis !

Sign in:

Up to 50 participants are directed and synchronized via wireless intercom, moving from one place to the other in Manhattan. The guides and directors of the performance are Christian Kuntner and Astride Schlaefli, two performing artists from Switzerland.

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. Following the successful previous 30 performances in 6 countries ( Buenos Aires, Marseille, Istanbul, Munich, Yerevan, Zurich, Lucerne, Bern, Geneva…), the event is going to happen for the first time in the US!
