In the summer of '11 Patrick Davison and I had a short residency at Mt. Tremper Arts in Mt. Tremper, NY. Leading up to and while there we created this short performance piece which is about the expectations an audience has for a performer - specifically a performer who they know is going to do something tricky.

The Hannah Complex is a performance for two vocalists, slide show and music.
The Hannah Complex is about reality, and the ways in which we, as members of it, are able to interact with and even control it. It sounds complicated, we know, but don’t worry - it involves Hannah Montana. The Hannah Complex explains why it is certain images seek to replicate themselves endlessly, and why some of us are capable of being at once ourselves and also … well … anyone else.
