SETUP ONE

 

Setup One gives voice to five monologues installed within a performative apparatus that reflects on the structural elements of cinema.

 

The director, the camera, the film material, subject man and woman all speak in varying tones and rhythms to create a cacophonous buzz of the cinematic machinery. The performer of this piece acts as a technician, his role is purely to adjust the volume of the voices by rotating the heads of the speaking objects.The spectatorship in this space is staged by a single channel live feed projection screen showing the audience looking.

Setup I. aims to become a type of anti-play: the stage is stripped back, the characters become objects, the act of looking is undermined by the dominance of hearing while the technician orchestrates a final soundscape.
