Video Installation with three synchronized screens
Originally recorded live in front of an audience for Performa 09 in New York, ‘Talk Show’ combines the familiar childhood game of Telephone with the confessional talk-show format. In a theatrical setting, invited guests recounted personal memories with direct links to current global events and the projection of power and freedom. While the guest talks, an actor listens on the stage and repeats the story from memory as soon as the guest is
finished. While the first actor talks, another actor/actress arrives and listens to the story, also for the first time, and repeats what he/she heard, albeit from the actor. This repeats six times, allowing the audience to see how an individual's first-hand memory is told and retold by a group of strangers. The unscripted story is transformed from individual memory to communal recitation, from an intimate story of tragedy into a comedy of sex and identity.
