WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In Reid Farrington's Gin & "It" his video theater work mirrors the technical feats of Hitchcock's daring film experiment in "Rope" with its own boundary-pushing melding of projected imagery and live drama. Again Farrington collaborates with film historians and archivists to bring a classic film to the stage with his own boundary-pushing melding of projected imagery and live drama. Hitchcock transferred the compressed drama of a one-set play into a suspenseful film through the illusion of being shot in one uninterrupted film take. Farrington explores the making of this technical tour-de-force. Utilizing the editing technique Farrington developed for The Wooster Group's HAMLET, he separates the performers in the film from their backgrounds, creating multiple planes of video. Similar to his approach to his directorial debut, THE PASSION PROJECT, Farrington continues to develop software that will allow these images (the actors from the film) to be placed on stage relative to their original positions according to the scale plan of the set. Presented as part of COIL 2010 and co-presented as part of Under The Radar in association with 3LD Art & Technology Center.
