If we dance in two places in the world at the same time, do we share the same space despite the distance? In this further development of the project We shall dance through the distance, Anita Twarowska (PL/DE) and Murillo Basso (BR) invite the video artists Oscar Loeser & Clemens Kowalski (DE) and Aline Santini (BR) to create in a pop up store in Potsdam-West an installation from the material of the first project phase.

The installations took place simultaneously in São Paulo and Potsdam and have been the stage for four live improvisations during the 10 days exhibition. (30.11 -10.12.2021)

We have been happy to support kombinat’s new piece überdruck with our work on the media framework. We used isadora as the playout engine, installed on a mac mini.

Isadora is triggered  by a user pushing the big red buzzer.

Then a combination of randomness, air pressure systems, latex specialty and kombinat’s wisdom in setting the right values will give you an unique experience with this machine.


isadora -> chamsys magicq

using isadora as the media engine for grand jeté we wanted to trigger the lighting desk, unfortunately chamsys only opens the midi functions with their proprietary midi / timecode interface

after analyzing the remote ethernet protocol we build an isadora actor

the protocol is a bit nifty, and a proxy is needed to transform the tcp stream into a udp one

the proxy server is established by using net cat with following attributes // you need to change the with the ip of your chamsys console / pc

type in your terminal:

nc -l -k 5555 | nc -u 6553

to exit the proxy session press “ctrl + c”


isadora is calculating the bit length of the array and using an increm counter to indicate  how many messages got send previously, you find more informations inside the actor  …
