Five People 2009

María Jerez, Min Kyoung Lee, Phil Hayes, Hanneke de Jong und Jean-Baptiste Veyret-Logerias

What happens when five international artists of different backgrounds, five total strangers to each other, are brought together to create a performance in a rather unusual way?

In Five Poeple we observe how a group changes with the arrival of a new person, and how each new voice with its own artistic interest has to find its place within the group.

Working in separate collaborative stages, a new artist joins at the beginning of each block. From a solo to a duet, a duet to a trio, and so on to a quintet.
