    Le miroir se brise.

    "A l’abri des regards, au fin fond de la crypte, une lutte syncopée s’engage.
    Cette femme étrange que rien n’effraie plus qu’elle-même, c’est elle, la Captive, prisonnière de son propre corps.
    Âme écorchée, proie d’insondables mutations, femme-monstre, monstre-femme, ta lutte révèle d’intimes éruptions redoutables, ta résignation est sage, demain est un autre jour et tout recommencera.
    Il était une fois une étrange demeure surplombant la ville…"

    J'ai participé à une exposition collective et un ami avait exposé des sculptures en métal à la cave.
    J'ai demandé à une amie de pauser pour moi dans ce décors étrange et inquiétant éclairé uniquement par des bougies.
    En plus il y avait une musique très angoissante et très forte qui nous a mis vraiment mal à l'aise. On a pu rester que quelques minutes...
    Les photos issues de cette séance photo m'ont inspiré ce film...

    "Hidden from one's eye, in the far end of the crypt, a syncopated fight begin.
    This strange woman that nothing frighten more than herself,
    it's her, the Captive, prisoner of her one's body.

    Tormented soul, prey of unfathomable mutations,
    monster-woman, woman-monster,
    your fight reveal intimate fearsome eruptions,
    your resignation is wise,
    tomorrow is an other day and everything will start again.

    Once upon a time a strange manor house overhanging the town..."

    I participated in an group exhibition and a friend had exposed metal sculptures in the basement.
    I asked a friend to pause for me in this strange and disturbing scenes lit only by candles.
    In addition there was a very scary music and very strong which made us really uncomfortable. We could stayed just a few minutes there...
    The pictures from this photo shooting inspired me this film...

  4. An Act Of Direct Engagement
    POW! POW! Acton Art Festival

    Recorded at the Climate Theater, San Francisco, California
    Friday, October 16, 2009

    Well, for this one about a third of the audience ran out of the room from fear [which is strange because it actually was a festival of "dangerous" performances]; another third froze in their seats ignoring the nude dancers [ditto!]. The final third loved it! A very successful piece!

    More: eroplay.com/Cave/powpow2009/

    The audience Friday night was about the most uptight fragile audience I have played to. This is seemingly absurd because it was a festival of edgy performance art… Of course edgy art often stays within the edges! But the festival was advertised like this:

    “Among many outrageous artists, POW! POW! 2009 will feature daring and controversial performers such as Frank Moore, Keith Hennessey, Michael Namkung, and many others.” -- POW! POW! Action Art festival 2009 at The Climate Theater.

    But most of the audience sat like they were in glass coffins even before the show started.

    The title of my piece was AN ACT OF DIRECT ENGAGEMENT. All of this should have been a warning of what to expect. And seeing just a nude guy in a wheelchair sitting on stage, slides projected upon his body, moaning/shouting/coaxing, gesturing or whatever the fuck he was doing, and this is all that is happening for several minutes that felt like hours!... Jesus Christ, it is obvious this piece isn’t playing in normal time, but is stretching time, moving outside of the normal boxes of comfortable zones!

    I wrote these top secret directions the night before the show:
    “I am being on stage alone for the first five to ten minutes. If nobody comes up, I will motion to Linda. Then Linda, Jen and Erika take off their clothes fast in the audience and start bringing people up onto the stage to me to touch me, rub me. [The musicians will start playing ten minutes into the piece.] For the last ten minutes you three will start rubbing me dirty!“

    And, with one exception, it went off as planned and timed as if I had planned and timed it… That never happens. The exception was that the house lights didn’t come on at first so that I could establish eye contact with the audience at the beginning. But I got the timing back on track [I watched my big clock all through the piece!]. I came in three minutes under my allotted half-hour! I packed a lot in within that time! When Linda, Jen and Erika took their clothes off in the audience and started going up to audience members to get them to go up to me to touch explore my body physically, they got very violent reactions about violating the audience’s personal space … as if this was theater, not performance art! But there was a group that developed around me … including people who at first said NO WAY! There was an innocent intimacy, mainly holding hands, pulling my body hair, including arm pit hair! But shtick cut this section artificially short. So Linda, Jen, Erika and I started our erotic play dance. Apparently this started the exit of a number of audience members, stopping at the door to give pieces of their minds … just like in the Dada days. I was glad we have not lost our touch! But I don’t think I should read too much into it because a similar mass exit was caused later just by removing chairs so that people could dance to the high energy raucous hip hop group. So it didn’t take much to piss those people off! But I will take the credit! Also after the show [while we were trying to get to the bathroom] we got surrounded by people [well, two] who loved the piece. They were able to describe why it inspired and turned them on. I am taking credit for those reactions too!
