It was project led by Julius Elo in 2009. The performances were in the Museum of Comtemporary Art, Kiasma (Kiasma-theatre) in October 2009.
Dialogues discussed the role of ethics in a performance, and created a space, where susceptibility, touching, and meeting another were possible. It was based on scenes consisting of two dialogues between a participant and performer. As performers we constructed the performance together with each participant through two dialogues: first verbal, then non-verbal, physical interaction. What kind of a performance the dialogues resulted in, was beforehand unknown to both the performer and the participant.
