I wanted to partially block the audience's view so they would choose the time and place of their experience. I gave them multiple monitored views from multiple cameras. But what they saw on monitors did not correspond to the live action they could see; they had to move to see where the live images were generated. It was an early effort to have performance viewed from all sides and to engage audiences in a more active way. It continued the video work of DUET where I was trying to give viewers an intimate experience of the dancing.
