I WILL TELL YOU EXACTLY WHAT I THINK OF YOU

I Will Tell You Exactly What I Think of You is an emotional endurance test, a talk show where the host is there to work out her desires and prejudices, using the audience as a cipher. Simultaneously fulfilling and questioning the urge to see oneself reflected in another, the audience seeks something of themselves in the answers. Self-selecting as guests, they submit themselves to a public reading from a stranger bound to tell them exactly what she thinks of them. SummerWorks marks the first time this popular work will be performed as a live-streamed web-series in front of a studio audience. Like a rollercoaster, you take your seat and hold on until it’s over.

COMMON FATE

Common Fate is an algorithmic performance.  Animations, music and a series of dances cycle through one another, creating distinct three-minute performances. As the show unfolds, the solos are combined into duos, triplets, and full-cast choreography, while musical themes layer in the increasingly complex live score. Watercolour animations provide a dreamlike cast to the bodies in motion, projected environments that shift between the concrete and symbolic. What seemed tragic in one context becomes laughable in another, what appeared silly takes on depth. We perceive individuals moving in parallel paths as a unified group, regardless of any actual connection between them. In moments of harmony and dissonance, we invent meaning from an empty plot.

Common Fate features performances from Amelia Ehrhardt, Emily Law, Julia Male and Chelsea Omel, with music composed and performed by Isla Craig, Brodie West and Andrew Zukerman.
