____gemelos2000 was founded in 2000 at the 4th International 72 Hour Congress for Performance & Visual Arts of the Gallery SoToDo in Sacramento, California in the USA. The artistic work includes all imaginable forms of expression, with a focus on painting, drawing, photography, installations, environments as well as conceptual, performative and participatory actions, collaborations and interventions in public space. ____gemelos2000 pursues, among other thingss the idea of experimenting and engaging in synchronous, parallel, interrupted, continuous, interactive as well as unplanned and spontaneous performances.

Lady Gaby is a performance artist/visual artist and curator who finds artistic inspiration in her surroundings. She deals with provocative, personal performances that address feminism and social justice.
Seamus O'Donnell has been working on various projects involving sound, both as an artist and as an organizer since 1999. Collaborative works (for performances or installations) may include FM radio experiments with receivers and homemade mini-transmitters; tape machine loop or relay setups from reel to reel; live sets with any mix of manipulated field recordings, homemade equipment, amplified objects and magnetic fields, inputless mixers and other more traditional instruments and voices. Improvisation is probably the most important factor. As an organizer, he works together with the registered association Salon Bruit e. V., a platform for experimental music.
He also works with ColaBoraDio, a part of Free Radio Berlin Brandenburg, as a presenter and program manager. He lives in Berlin.
The artist captures sounds from the space, manipulates and reproduces them, objects as well as people present at the site.
Jan Raydán Bastidas
The artists use electronic spatial soundscapes mixed with processed voices, minimalist stage performance and dystopian video projections to take you on this journey and leave a lasting impression that resemble the sound of a sinking ship.
This performance is presented by Loreto Zamora, Estefania Cadena and Nikolas Klau.
