Helen and Paula arranged the magical elements of telematic performance in a montage of stuff, poetry, sound, images, dialogue, polemic and actions. The evening was constructed so that participants engaged with lots of different parts of themselves: spectator, performer, builder; (inner)-child, learner, team-player. It was utterly engrossing and left us all with a thrilling sense of the unexplored potential of theatre and performance in the networked age. Ruth Catlow, Furtherfield
make-shift is a unique and intimate networked performance that speaks about the fragile connectivity of human and ecological relationships. The event happens simultaneously between two ordinary houses and a bespoke online performance space accessible to anyone, anywhere with a broadband connection. make-shift is a house party, a chat room, a slide show and a performance process – a live event for the 21st century that re-imagines the private actions of our domestic lives as multiple, interconnected and with global consequences.
