This fall, I’m starting a new curatorial/dramaturgical project called One-Shot. Produced in collaboration with Studio 5-2, the project is a web-based, solo performance relay exploring the paradox of isolation in a world full of “social” media. One-Shot’s pilot season will include solos created and performed by Megan Sprenger, David Thomson, and Aretha Aoki.
Each artist participating in One-Shot receives six hours of rehearsal time at Studio 5-2, during which to create a solo performance specifically for the internet. The web-based solos will be premiere online, and remain available in a web-based catalogue for performance-viewing at any time. This chain of archived presentations will be augmented by an online discussion – ok, a blog – through which participating artists can discuss their experiences with the project, as well as their artistic work in general.
One-Shot aims to maximize existing resources to spark creativity and community.
One artist. One day. One take. Infinite possibilities.
