Using only their mother tongue the five artists will challenge each other into collective action while trying to overcome language and cultural differences. Their communication is handicapped by this constraint - which means they will have to invent a new language based on some common words, codes, the technical possibilities of streaming and their bodies.

Will we choose to use more or even less rules? Will we need a leader or continue without one? Maybe Ruth will become a leader naturally because she is only one authorized to use English, the language understood by all. What can we share? How can we position ourselves? What kind of voice will be possible?

Networks are fragile.
