Gentle Threat

back to performance





videography by Gia Goodrich


Gentle Threat is constructed with a perspective that the state with slight nervousness and heightened awareness is what distinguishes performing body from viewing body. Taking advantage of a public site, this performance plays with a traditional role of audience and that of performers. While the audience is situated to view various actions, they experience being watched by the performers and other general public roaming in the space. It is to evoke a sense of theat for the audience in the subtle manner through gradual revelation of other performers and dispersed sense of space.

25 minute live performance
