5min. excerpt from Shade Compositions 2009
Video documenting my live performance of Shade Compositions at The Kitchen, New York City using 21 black female performers. The performers enacted my choreographed sound score comprised of repeated sequences of culturally specific or stereotypical gestures, movements, and vocalizations and simultaneously and in real-time recorded, looped and remixed in real-time the audio and video documentation of the performers using a hacked Nintendo Wii game controller. The video demonstrates my proven ability to deliver on ambitious projects and demonstrates some of the controller and other technology I will use in Five.
