In 2015, E.S.P. TV will embark on a coast to coast US tour. Complete with a van outfitted as mobile broadcast unit, the project will take us full circle around the country, stopping at venues and (cable access and radio) stations to collaborate, record, and broadcast performance, sound and media based works of art. In our usual E.S.P. TV fashion, we will record each unique interaction with our hybrid analog / digital broadcast set up, to be broadcast on our Cable Access program as well as online. This is the 2nd stop on a 13 city tour across the US. This will also be a documentary, a catalogue, and a show on TV.
Live performances by:
Erica Nix -workout!
Daniel Hipólito -live modular “commercials” with Samantha Gibble & Johnathan Cote
Lauren Tallulah Klotzman-a teleplay
Sebastian Turner and Olivia Warner -set and prop design

About E.S.P. TV
Directed by Scott Kiernan and Victoria Keddie, this expansive project utilizes a mobile television studio to explore the artist dialogue with broadcast transmission, analog and digital media, and televisual liveness.
E.S.P. TV’s live TV studio hybridizes technologies old and new to realize synthetic environments for performance that also expose the process of production. Each live taping event is the realization of an artists’ collaboration with us. These events are taped live with a crew of cameramen, sound engineer, and video mixing team in front of an audience. The recorded events air on Manhattan Neighborhood Network public television weekly, as well as online, and have been exhibited internationally.
E.S.P. TV has held over 50 live taping events internationally and has aired over 70 episodes to date.
In addition to our live tapings and screenings, we have initiated the TUBE Archive as a means for republishing works and ephemera from early artist-based engagements with broadcast media. In Fall 2014, E.S.P. TV built a mobile broadcast van. In April 2015, we will tour across the United States in our mobile broadcast van in partnership with organizations and artists across the nation.
E.S.P. TV has worked with various venues including: The Whitney Museum of American Art, New Museum, Museum of Arts and Design, Printed Matter, Millennium Film Workshop, New School, Rawson Projects, Recess (NYC); Interstate Projects, Spectacle Theater, Issue Project Room, Roulette (Brooklyn); Franklin Street Works (Stamford, CT), Liminal Space (Oakland, CA), Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco, CA), Ballroom Marfa (Marfa, TX), General Public (Berlin), STORE (Dresden), Studio XX (Montreal), Kling and Bang Gallery (Reykjavik) and Pallas Projects (Dublin).
E.S.P. TV broadcasts every Tuesday night at 10PM on Manhattan Neighborhood Network (MNN). Channel 67 in Manhattan, as well as online at www.mnn.org. All episodes are then posted online on our website and Vimeo platforms. E.S.P. TV now also airs on Wednesdays with Comcast Cable 66/966 or Verizon Fios 29/30 in Philadelphia at 11:30PM.
