Interactive Performance "Political Publication"

A multi-media and interactive project that brings together performers and audiences, everyone is seated in a circular form around a ciruclar fabric to participate in a performance that is part scripted and part improvised. The central fabric is a screening surface on which segment of recorded video, live video, and experimental video are projected while the surrounding circle of performers and audiences alike observe and engage with what is presented on the screen. The circle symbolizes, on the one hand, the public spaces where revolutions arise, on the other hand, the competing media coverage and its polarizing effect, and lastly, the emergence of a new political arena.
