performing under duress
2001. I was curious about performing under duress. Girl dressed in white (me) sings Adele's aria from Die Fledermaus "Mein Herr Marquis" as perfectly as she can while girl dressed in black with old man mask (Stefania Pedretti) paints red scars on her, attacks her, and wrestles her to the ground strangling her with the paint brush. Stefania and I developed this performance together while on the Phi Phenomenon Tour, which was a series of experimental noise performances.
