In 2005 , 2006, 2008 and 2011, Nou&Herkauw performed at Clash in Groningen . Clash 2005 was the first major event for Nou&Herkauw . With 10 projectors, a large pile of computers, cameras and mixers , we decorated the ‘small’ room of the Oosterpoort . The possibility to let the visitors participate in the creation process was a new approach and seemed to work very contagious. The show at Clash 2006 was expanded with the FaceBooth and instant movie scene maker , where classic movie scenes instantly where re-enacted by a group of young actors.
At Clash in 2008 we experimented with the real live VJ reality soap, The Posse, intertwined with VJ-sets of invited VJ collectives from Groningen. , The Posse consisted of 3 groups of friends that where invited to record their lives in the 3 weeks prior to Clash . Compilations of these were seen on the Clash site . During Clash the same friend groups walked around with phone camera’s to film their whereabouts on the festival . The phone streams where captured live by the VJ’s, looped and mixed with the pre-made VJ footage of their lives.
