Vasiliki Riala performing ‘Humming’, July 2017

In island, the audience activated the performance by reading instructions to the performers. The instructions were based on self-awareness achieved through continual movement of the body. While the audience could choose from a range of actions, the performers controlled the duration and intensity of each action over a period of 24 hours.


Close your eyes
Inhale collectively
Release through the voice
Repeat, 10 times

Body weight

Form a line
First performer steps forward and lies down
Second performer steps forward and lies down on first performer  
Third performer steps forward and lies down on second performer
Breathe in and out collectively  

Collective clap

Close your eyes
Focus on each other
Clap collectively for 30 times
Finish together
When not reached start over again


Tilt your head back
Open your mouth
Breathe deeply towards your arms
Inhale, lift your heels Exhale, put your heels down
End when the weight becomes unbearable
