La chose

Christophe Meierhans & Ant Hampton

La chose ('The Thing') consists of 4 episodes that must be fully attended in order, over 4 days. Each episode brings together a group of 8 to 12 people who then execute the performance-workshop independently with the help of an automated kit that includes video projections, soundtracks, mural frescoes and pieces of paper.
