Event Description

ACTUA 1 constructs an event that both happened and did not.  An exercise in futility and concentration, the piece is named after Actua One, a lost film from the May ’68 uprisings. Performers pace restlessly in the main gallery, as they spout slogans for a missing revolution. Actors propel themselves out of stagnation and boredom through complex object procedures and mental tasks. Speeches, music, activities, and radio are projected into the gallery’s back room via video cameras and microphones, where the audience can watch from a comfortable distance. The action is both intimately proximal and telepresent.  ACTUA 1: an absent performance for five performers—the soldiers from Godard’s “Les Carabiniers” performing Allan Kaprow on public access.
