Chinese Whispers

– A study in instant choreography for camera

Chinese Whispers is an interactive video installation that encloses the present, the future and the past.

Similar to the classic children’s game, where a sentence travels from one person to another and with time transforms into something new, we ask our participants to physically respond, confirm and interpret each others contributions.

Through a collective effort and commitment we create an ongoing movement conversation that can last forever!

A big thank you to all participants.
Love, Trade Project

Current and past exhibitions

The first version of Chinese Whispers was created during the work with Trade - the installation in 2010.

Trade is an interdisciplinary arts project that explore how ideas of collectivism, network and sharing cultures can control an artistic process and shape a result. Within this frame, each production deals with a specific topic, from where the work develops. Trade was initiated in 2010 by choreographer/dancer Andrea Deres, Carolina Bäckman, Ellesiv Selseng and composer/musician Johannes Burström. Read more about Trade.
