Due to restricted international mobility, artists now have less possibilities than ever to meet «in real life» with both their audiences and collaborators. Artistic exchange and collaboration across continents and geographical distances has temporarily come to a halt or entirely moved into the digital sphere. In this conversation between participants from two different artistic projects that were created in transcontinental collaborations during the past couple of months, we will hear about the experiences and implications of working creating across a distance while producing and working with imaginations of other realities, places and audiences elsewhere. Together with Isabelle Stoffel, the theatre collective Lagartijas tiradas al Sol have created the audio experience «Una muerte de la que nadie habla» for listeners at Zurich Lake. The radio art collective Ligna has invited 13 choreographers and performance artists from different countries for the international radio ballet «Zerstreuung überall!» that is to be experienced in public space.
