It is possible to perform Halfbreadtechnique without the artists physical presence. In that case, a postman would bring a parcel on stage with instructions and the artists fee inside, as well as an envelope with a CD and a light plan for the technician*. Several audience members are paid to unfold the show. At a specific moment, a guest dancer is announced and appears on the spot. He dances for the rest of the show while the audience members are continuing reading out loud the script.
* This show has to be well prepared together with the artist beforehand. The technician is doing a 1 hour set up before and actually knows what is going to happen. The guest dancer as well. But not the audience.
On tour in South Africa, produced by Valerie Geselev, and in Maputo Dancefestival
