Performance 25' minutes 2012

In the performance vignettes from two story lines focusing on “the act of performing and performance anxiety” run next to and through each other forming a looping absurdist play of 25 minutes. Two actors female and male are stuck in a play that keeps repeating while a singer songwriter is trapped in the moment of stage fear. The play is structured and composed of the repetitive dialogue, choreography, and music functioning more like a score rather than a narrative.
