We acknowledge a discrepancy or chasm between the everyday practices of performance, music and/or activism in situ (where the persons involved encounter and live with their community) and the abstracted world of the arts festival. The persons invited to this episode are situated within their own communities, histories, locations. What happens when they are relocated, and framed differently by people with different histories? How might people in communities we're part of (here and there) address this reframing? What kind of listening and acknowledging do we offer each other? What is it to listen to an âelsewhere', and do we ever do anything else when we listen to music?
