A new performance and video installation from Liz Magic Laser
Liz Magic Laser is back and this time she's setting up shop in Paula Cooper Gallery. For Absolute Event, two actors perform a dialogue in which a political strategist coaches a politician from behind the scenes of a situation room. The script they're reading from combines material from Edmond Rostand’s 1897 play Cyrano de Bergerac, political rhetoric and interviews Laser conducted with political and public relations strategists. Transforming the gallery into a situation room with disco club elements, the performance will be staged twice. Audience members are invited to participate while a live-feed video is produced, edited and projected. The video remains on view through the end of the month.
