Aural choreography for an audience temporarily deprived of their sight. By using a multichannel amplification system, portable speakers, instruments, objects and the voice, we fill the space with moving sound, leading the audience into a contemplative and auditory state that allows us to convey some ideas from writers, artists and activists in a close and intimate manner, like a caress in the ear. At the end of the performance, attendees uncover their eyes and find a luminous object with the word PERSISTENCE, while a barely perceptible sound continues for a few minutes. Upon leaving the site, a publication with some of the texts read in the performance is delivered to the public.

9 performance sessions were held at daadgalerie, Berlin, at the CTM Festival. A tenth session was conducted exclusively for Deutschlandfunk Kultur, which broadcastedthe piece as a second phase of the exhibition and offered a podcast version in binaural format for a season.

The piece is a tribute to those who remain critical today, to the activist struggle, and the cultural resistance.
