The ongoing project, Performance for One, is a collective exploration of the lives of NYC nightlife performers during the time of COVID, and the manners in which live stage craft can be translated into digital and socially distanced practice. The project encompases video installations featuring the artist and other performers, soft sculptures that double as activation objects and a studio mural, which all function to transform the space into the artist’s “socially distanced theater.” As only the artist may enter and be present in the space, the video pieces function as a bridge to social platforms where an audience may experience them in a newly imagined way.
