I am listening. Chicago

In 2019 Etheridge & Persighetti collaborated with Karen Christopher on Thick Time Radio Station, a Haranzak/Navarre Performance Projects event series in Chicago, USA. Focussing on creative co-mentorship Karen Christopher and Etheridge & Persighetti worked with a group of Chicago based artists in a residency at MANA Contemporary, Pilsen (hosted by High Concept Labs), and presented events and provocations at Hyde Park Arts Center, Experimental Station, Blackstone and Co-Prosperity Sphere, Bridgeport, Chicago.

Thick Time Radio Station looked at the idea of the transmission and reception of imperceptible influences and the phenomenon of light making visible what we might otherwise fail to see, bringing to attention what is already going on rather than creating or inventing actions. The project included performance and writing workshops, performance lectures as well as experiential events.
