WHAT I MISS ABOUT YOU STRANGER

Surge, Established Specialist Artist Residency 2022

Multidisciplinary Performance 

Test of the Performance during the residency 

The endoscope is able to span the physical and psychological chasm created by a global pandemic. The camera becomes an extended arm or a kind of paint brush, recording, tracing and rendering participants in the space and simultaneously creating a live interactive performance and a film that fragments the participants’ bodies into gestures, sounds and drifting contours.

Ideally as viewers respond to my performance, the choreography is improvised between the perform- er, the camera, and the audience. I want to interrogate the position of the performer, I want the audience to be equally at the center of the performance, allowing the audience to see themselves through me.
