Harold Offeh: Duets
For Project Radio artist Harold Offeh will invite up to 6 people to perform a duet with him live from &model gallery. Offeh and guests will create a series of short performance duets for radio. Taking as its starting point the collaborative model/structure of the song duet, outcomes might range from spoken word, to conversations, to ambient sounds. Duets is a playful attempt to reveal the creative process of collaboration and an extension of Offeh’s project ofoffering his body as a material and potential site for other peoples work.
