multimedia installation inside a touring bus (Hidden Track), and the musical theatre
performance Chinese Whispers. ART IN OUTPUT takes place in Eindhoven,
the Netherlands, from February 17th until March 2nd. The festival is
organised by Studium Generale of the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven.

message to the lighting designer who, in turn, passes it on to the
video maker, who then..
Chinese Whispers was especially developed for
the unique space of the former university laboratory for high pressure
The multimedial bus ride "Hidden Track" was co-produced by ART IN OUTPUT and DEAF03.
