I am very excited to be a part of the brilliant Telephone project by the Satellite Collective, which will see artists from all over the world creating artistic responses to each other.
Here is more info on it:
This game works almost exactly like the kids' game "telephone," with the message evolving as it travels, surprising and confounding the players.
Rather than simply passing the message from person to person via language alone, Satellite Collective is passing it from art form to art form. A message in music might become a poem, which might become a film, and then a dance work, and so on. The process begins with a very specific message we're "whispering" from artist to artist, but each participant will have access only to the work directly preceding his own. None of the players will know the full evolution of the message until the end. As in the original game, the progression is a secret.
So yeah, let the game begin. I was given my "whisper" today and can't wait to start working on it. Keep an eye out and we will let you know the end result of it.

We have just returned from a mad weekend at Latitude festival, in which we, mind our language, fucking rocked! Our queues were so popular that we over ran for 1hour, until 2am!
For news, commentary and pictures from our messy and fun stint, be a darling and click on this link to see our blog: Almost Xav at Latitude Festival
And yes, that is a picture of from our show being used as a book-mark by an audience member. It's signed as well. We hope they will keep it for as long as possible.
