A Message to You was originally conceived for the Väinölänniemi Stadium in Kuopio as part of the Anti Festival in Finland. Alongside the collection of every journey we make, we also archive every text message we send each other. The task of the durational performance A Message to You is to shout the text messages we sent each other starting a year to the day we perform and continuing up until the last text message we send before the performance. Depending on the amount of messages, the performance lasts 3-4 hours.
A Message to You was performed twice in 2008, first in Finland and then as part of the performance art day at Preview Berlin at the entrance to hangar 2 at the former airport at Tempelhof. On 11 June 2016 we performed A Message to You in Reading, UK, as part of Amy Sharrocks’ festival ‘Do Rivers Dream of Oceans?‘
