Over the 2 days of April 11th and 12th 2023, Institute for Certified Nomadic Illicit Sonic Practices - ICNISP (Matthias Koole & Marina Cyrino) invites the poet/performer Angélica Freitas and the film director/video artist Sina Ataeian Dena for a new interdisciplinary collective creation.

“Buck-Passing” is both a sound-theatre performance and a multimedia installation. The artists combine instrumental techniques, refined satire and critical use of chroma keying to address the intertwining of global north and south in producing criminal environmental disasters. They are interested in performing - and intervening in patterns of attribution of blame, also known in English as “buck-passing”. These are strategies to postpone responsibilities, which aim to make the crimes fall into oblivion, hinder investigations, and deviate from the essential: the care and protection of human and other-than-human life.

Angélica Freitas: text, performance.
Marina Cyrino: amplified flute.
Matthias Koole: guitar electronics.
Sina Ataeian Dena: live video editing, video.
