At a time when we were distanced from each other, A Portrait Without Borders brought our audience together.
For Freedom Festival 2020 we invited audience members to have their portrait drawn by Kaleider's non-learning AI on the walls of the currently deserted Hull Truck Theatre, not by humans, but by wall-drawing robots. The intention was to create a massive mural of many faces. Strangers next to each other, simultaneously present, together, and yet apart. At a time when we are distanced from each other, A Portrait Without Borders brought us together.
