“Thievery, pure thievery,” Melissa Rindell said. “It’s such a simple idea and yet so genius. I wish I could say it was mine, but Le Projet Téléphone is based on a show I saw in New York, which stuck. I like a show that sticks.”
Last September, Rindell, Heather Ancliffe and Emil Karimov met in Jardin Public to pick a proverb from a hat, launching a cross-genre/cross-cultural artistic game of telephone into motion. The proverb was used as an initial inspiration for the first artist who created something and passed the work along. Six months later, ten artists will have created a piece, seeing only the work of the artist before them. The work will culminate in a live performance at Les Vivres de l’Art, on April 29th at 9:00pm.

Other artists in the line-up include: DJ, Jowen , illustrator Ita Duclair, songwriter I Am Stamgram, costume designer Helina Raak, theater company Collectif OS’O, filmmaker Fred Cavender, and painter Kelly Allison.
“All of the artists have only seen the work before them, so I’m looking forward watching them discover what happened before and after their piece, along with the audience.”
