Naked opera show
19 min. video: This performance took place at Powerhouse Arena during the 2010 Dumbo Arts Festival: 36 models followed live direction, as vocalists and violins emerged from within the “living picture.”
The performance featured an original a Cappella score by Rima Fand and Sarah Small, and co-performance direction by Adam J. Thompson.
irectly following the performance, a panel of choreographers, curators, and art historians (Jill Sigman, Mashinka Firunts, Danny Snelson, and Natalie Galazka) led a discussion about the contemporary intersection of performance and photography.
The panel was moderated by Elizabeth Barragan and was curated by Lindsay Comstock.
