MOVIE LIVE SHOW

INSTALLATION ART/PERFORMANCE ART/VIDEO

Through both real and fictional lives and roles, we observe each person’s values in the moment.

1. MOVIE LIVE SHOW - IN BUILDING

This project would take movie making and inject it into reality, creating different roles and story settings—for example chairmen, Indian housewives, beggars, and animals—building a small scale environment, finding appropriate actors working with me to play out fixed 10-minute plots which people would be invited into to play out stories. From there, with no direction, the person in question would use their own personality to fill their new role; then, through stepping out of their character and becoming a simple observer, they can see how their values differ as they play out different roles.

PRODUCTION

In terms of physical setup, this piece would require the design of a two-level theatrical space in which could be created a simulated world. On the outside walls of the space, billboard-like screens would show live broadcasts of what is happening inside. In terms of scripting, each 10-minute script would be tailored to each participant, with different responses planned out for their different potential reactions. Performances would be in a constant stream of 10-minute shows.
