Beginning on the opening night and continuing daily throughout the festival, ikatun will realize 100(11) instruction works. A series of performances in and around the public spaces of the festival 100(11) instruction works is based on instruction works submitted online from users around the world. Each day, one instruction work will be chosen for realization. Please log onto ikatun.com/100-11 for details. This project will also be webcast online and projected in real-time. In collaboration with the InterAccess Electronic Media Arts Centre.
