Room Without Escape

Live stream performance 2015

In January 2015 the working group Nameless consisting of Anna-Sofia Nylund and Lidia Bäck performed "Room Without Escape - An obscene  web-performance".


The performance was streamed live from an unidentified room in Helsinki. Anyone had the power to influence Nameless by writing to them through a chat.


Room Without Escape was streamed online for seven days at different times a day. This made it available to anyone anywhere around the world. The audience were able to give any task to Nameless, who promised that they would do everything asked for. The Performance had over 7000 viewers and received thousands of commands and comments.

Costumes: Sanna Pietilä

Videomixer: Ludvig Allén

The performance was later made in to an installation; They asked for it!
