Someplace Else is a durational walk for two performers in two very different places. Adrian Wood and Frans Van Lent take a walk in their respective cities – Chicago, IL and Rotterdam, the Netherlands – taking turns calling one another to report their surroundings. While one reports what they/he sees, hears and smells from standing still in their location, the other walks and listens. They trade off, creating a rhythm of phone calls that punctuate the durational 90 minute sound walk performance.
The phone call was broadcast on internet livestream (Radio Worm) as well as terrestrial radio in Chicago. Listeners could access part or all of the performance by tuning their radio to the broadcast frequency, or by streaming it online.
In Chicago local time, the performance was from 12:00 to 1:30 pm, in Rotterdam from 7:00 to 8:30 pm.
Someplace else is part of Intercity, a project of Out of Site Chicago, PAE and Worm Rotterdam.
