Evasion, or how to perform a tongue escape in public


Related work: as far as you can for as long as you can.

Holding out your tongue as far as you can for as long as you can. 

Live setup: The live performer tries to last as long as the pre-recorded performance which followed the instructions stated above. The sound on the pre-recorded version consists primarily of sounds from the first performance of this piece in Montréal, 2000. The image on the pre-recorded version comes from a studio recording done at the ORF in Vienna in the Summer of 2001 for the hold, still web and radio project.
