Bale Light Stories


MFA Thesis performance.  University of Colorado, Boulder.

Set design by Vaida Daukantas,  Lighting by Bob Shannon, Choreography and Sound Design by Polly Motley

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.
