The WFMU Fundraising Marathon 2018 starts today, Sunday 4 March and runs for two weeks. People Like Us has had a radio show on WFMU since 2003 and been played on the station for waaay longer than that. WFMU has supported People Like Us immensely, artistically and gifted us with lots of new friends. It makes our world a much richer place. Two of these friends we will co-host with this coming week. Tune in and please pledge. It’s a great two weeks of the year. The marathon is also great fun. Lots of co-hosting, and lots of marathon prizes to be had. Tune in, and involve yourself.

Shadow Libraries: UbuWeb in Athens
16-18 MARCH 2018
People Like Us will be part of an UbuWeb conference in Athens later this month. It will include artist talks and group discussions, workshops and a WORLD PREMIERE of a work in progress version of our new single screen a/v performance The Mirror. Yes, we’ve not quite finished it yet (!) but this is too good a platform to not use since UbuWeb is our internet home. Tickets for The Mirror: http://www.sgt.gr/eng/SPG2098/

People Like Us will be doing an artist presentation, a workshop about process, and a performance. All info is at the above url. Continue reading

We are pleased to announce a new audiovisual immersive cinema performance by People Like Us called The Mirror, which will be performed from March 2018 worldwide.
Vicki Bennett produces audio-visual, moving image works and live performance for audiences at festivals and galleries across the world. The Mirror is a live a/v performance which splices together movie snippets with unique sample-based music exploring the masks that we wear represented through the lens, using parallel narratives across the screen to depict an ever-changing stream, rather than a singular, fixed being, narrative or moment in time.
