Live Doku Performance is a live-streaming mobile video feed at large festivals and events, presenting at the interstection between reportage and interactive performance. This not only to provide documentation of an event, but also to interact with it, creating a performative experience for the viewer and the event itself. The streaming video is viewable online as well as in the central meeting point of the festival, for participants and visitors to experience live what is happening in other parts of the festival. This has been presented at two events:
Human Rights Lab/DMY Festival (June, 2012)
Makerplatz/Beta Festival (September, 2011)

2010 / K Salon, Berlin
Danger (safety). Love (hate). And no way out. You can find me there. Fire, ice, confinement, and shortness of breath. Will you reach out to me? The performer situates herself in a doorway, confined in plastic, with ice melting above, and fire burning beneath. She attempts to communicate with the world outside without words.
2009 / VolksLuxus, Berlin
I want to give you something… (a secret, a scar, a kiss) Don’t be afraid. Three people at a time are invited to enter a small secluded space, and share an intimate experience with the performer one by one, while the others watch in close proximity.
