Installation/performance shots from Issue Project Room

Performance at Issue Project Room

collaboration with Sergei Tcherepnin

This collaborative performance/installation with Sergei Tcherepnin involved cardboard panels outfitted with transducers, turning each into a portable sound-generating wall, which can be touched for a tactile experience of the sonic.

While traditional theatrical reception de-emphasizes the audience, this piece examines the role of architecture in creating a space focusing on sociability, bodies, and the role of the audience.

In the performance, numerous gestures are enacted in relation to power in the theatrical space. A stage curtain, an object of division, is brought down to become a rug. Walls become tables, with the piece ending with members of the audience literally around the table.
