    Networked Performance, Buffalo, NY and Weimar, Germany

    Networked Derive (#ntwkder) is a collaborative performance between two geographically-separate locations. Using mobile phones, twitter feeds and a simple mapping system, performers drift through their cities guided my maps other. Participants use maps that have a city on each side. The derive starts when one team reports its location to the other. The other team uses a pushpin to mark the location of the first team on the first team’s map, and then turns the map over and travels to the spot indicated. The second team then reports their location to the first team, who repeats the same process, leading them to a different site. The choreography of the piece is created by variations in the maps and the speed the information is exchanged. The patterns of holes become a form of notation
