Past performances/videos with public participation:

 

“The Great Abnerio Circus “

The circus was composed of volunteers who were asked to create their own magic and circus act.  The costumes and choreography were all made on site for a three day work shop.  The final shooting was a one take live recording- later edited by one of the volunteers.

“The Clown”

Th clown is an adaptation of the Charles Mingus Album “The Clown” which I changed the outcome to be a happy ending.  The Video was shot one time as the performance was made in front of a live audience.   The video was shown in the same space of the performance, and the viewer had to enter dressed like a clown to view the video in the installation

“Sick Productions”

I was invited to give a talk at a school for special need students about my work- as a result, this video was shot of the students rapping as well as creating their own costumes and tattoos.  The Video was a concept of the student as well as the name “Sick Production”, bringing forward a great insight into their own position in society.
