Static, 2009

The audience enters to see a large projection of television static and two performers wearing full body white spandex costumes that resemble loose fitting bags. Because the performer’s costumes are white, they become screens and disappear inside the static. Once the audience is settled the static and the performers start to move and the performer’s voices become audible. “Can you see me. Time passes” is the evocative utterance that structures the monologues of Static, which are filled with broken down language, archaic sounds and fragmented memories. The performers are wearing wireless microphones that process their voices through a computer. The performer’s sounds and speech are mixed with a sound mix of static, earthquakes and animal calls.
