If you’re lost, here is an example out of my head: The audience (of one) buy a ticket for an available time slot. They receive and email from you (the artist) in which you propose at the start time they imagine the performance you will be doing for 3 minutes, they don’t see it. At the time you record with a camera your performance for 3 minutes. A few minutes later you compare notes online (via chat or email or zoom). Afterwards they can watch what you actually did.
