"Single-Point Perspective: The One Truthiness"

Painted live in front of the audience, this piece of interactive theater and visual art uses the creation of the painting itself to build a story where each layer changes our understanding of the whole. Each addition, removal, and change exists in relationship to all the others. In the end, the painting is an artifact of a history. Only those there to witness the creation will recognize all the pieces that went into it.

The audience reads the text, controlling the speed and tone of the performance, and the painting is created in response.

Inspired by recent events near (Ferguson, Eric Garner, #BlackLivesMatter) and far (Israel), this piece explores complexity and nuance in a world that goes on in real time, in which all points of view, and choices of action are happening simultaneously, in which we are all implicated.
