|Holiday House (film)||| Print ||
On holiday the normal sequence of time unravels. Regular activities, chores and spatial awareness of ordinary places are deconstructed or completely altered. In this space of relaxing (or trying to), perception bends. Reality shifts. Apply this condition to your house and home becomes a holiday
We choose to work in our house as a way to literally work at home, in Minneapolis and produce something in an everyday and private space. The house has its own agency in the work, constantly generating and framing the bodies of the performers and informing and transforming the sound score. A metaphysical blurring of past and present occurs within this old architecture.Since we created the film we have also developed a stage work for Minneapolis and NYC and a site work performed in our home.
