My friend Sarah Small is launching  her Tableau Vivant of The Delirium Constructions - GLOBAL TOUR .  She needs to raise some cash , check out her kickstart drive at www.kickstarter.com/projects/1… and help if you can .



Project Description

Tableau Vivant of The Delirium Constructions is a 75-minute, 120-body performance event, derived from the processes and methods of my still photographic series, which explores disparate characters and themes brought together in the same space to study improbable, close interactions. The performance itself exists within the larger framework of a 4-5 hour audience-integrating nightlife experience.

Performances begin in silence and stillness, as the audience confronts a static composition: a stack of human forms.  As the performance unfolds these forms come to life, singly and in groups, alternating between static pose and surging gesture. Music emerges, evolving into choral harmonies; visual relationships are born and torn asunder; tension rises, only to dissipate. Finally, the performance melts into the crowd, eliminating the boundaries between the observer and the observed.

Unlike traditional theatre, the art of Tableau is rooted in the identities and interactions of the people involved—most of whom have little or no experience in performing arts of any kind. They are a "self-selecting" community, and the content is drawn from their personal histories and rapidly developing relationships with each other—in turn eliminating the artifice of "acting."

In sum, Tableau is performance, tip-toeing on the edge of immersive theatre. It is music, incorporating classical aria, local folk song, choral drones, and string instruments. It is dance, juxtaposing organic, arrhythmic gesture with choreographed movement. It is visual spectacle, as one-hundred-twenty people pose and move in a range of costume: historical dress, contemporary fashion, nakedness. Finally, it is experiment; together, creating moments of truly original, highly improbable intimacy.

To see what we have tried to put into words above, visit The Delirium Constructions Vimeo page vimeo.com/27949634  … video footage available from select past performances (2009-2011).

Hello Deviant world, I love art of all types. I am amazed at the amount of fantastic work on this site. I do some modeling as a hobby. I thoroughly enjoy concept types of shoots. I am very reliable and can travel within reason and with enough notice, to take part in interesting artistic projects. I hope you enjoy some of the work in my port.
