Collaboration with DD Dorvillier.
Installed in Brooklyn, NY & NYC, NY, USA.
Dressing Room was an installation with a live performance of a person projecting a video inside of a locked dressing room. It was made for DD Dorvillier‘s performance “No Change,” and shown at the Context Studio in Brooklyn NY in 2005 and Dance Theater Workshop (currently known as New York Live Arts) in 2006.
The video contained recordings of two performers and myself sitting in the dressing room. While we sat, we mediated about DD’s piece “No Change.” The third performer, Michael, projected the recording of us sitting onto the exact wall where we sat.
The installation had two sources of audio. The first source came from the projected video and played edited conversations I had with people during the production period of “No Change.” The second source was the live voice of Michael. He spoke whatever came to his mind while projecting the video onto the wall.
