intervention by Sybille Deligne & David Zagari

Mobile phones allow us to be reachable at any time. They give us the opportunity to physically escape from where we are. In addition, they have become an indispensable tool for most people and are devices of control as well as geo-localization. As mobile phones emit radio waves with a very low frequency, those waves are inaudible to the human ear. The action of Les Porteurs consists of three performers interfering with the masses of walking people. Devices detecting low frequency emissions will be amplified by using loudspeakers. This action interrupts the flow of the arteries playing back the ubiquitous Hertz.
