/ setting / reactive 2-channels-video + panorama photographie

settings of a performance with a narrative character

panoramic picture of the shooting set

setting is structured in 3 moments:
1 a set situation, where the simultaneity of parallel running performances becomes spatial
2 a series of panoramic pictures as a document of the same set situation
3 an interface between the videorecorded actions and the viewer, which allowed a kind of navigation over time and space.

setting pretends to reduce narration into space and time structures: 5 spaces were developed where 5 performances have taken place sharing a common dramaturgic time.

4 of the set situations are monologues: excerpts of private interiors where single women are improvising their mental interiors. The 5th situation introduces 3 men playing cards. The card game is fixing the dramaturgic running time (around 12 minutes).
