Audience to Audience
A performance in collaboration with Veronika Spierenburg.
In the gallery with extensive glass windows were sat in rows, looking out onto the busy New York street, volunteer performers. Passers-by stop and look, in turn observed by those inside. Directions are given to the performers to act in unison in reaction to and for the attention of the viewers on the other side of the glass; for instance by looking at a particular person, by laughing or by applauding. Reciprocally the public may respond to these actions. The situation raises the question of who is audience and who is performer?
