Handheld Devices: Phoning

Handheld Devices- Phoning is the latest in a series of works by Inner Fish in which performers use only human or battery-powered hand-held machines. Phoning sources the smartphone to invert the common dynamics of distance created in a screen-mediated culture. Performances are five-minute moments in a portable closet with a random passerby.


Inner Fish is an interdisciplinary performance company from Kelowna B.C. that creates touring performances and public interventions. For Phoning, Artistic Directors Neil Cadger and Denise Kenney collaborate with writer Michael V. Smith. The company offers educational and professional opportunities for emerging interdisciplinary artists.
