A PROLOGUE AND THREE ACTS

 

One part motion study, one part live theatrical experience and one part document, this piece explores Krantz's continued interest in the encounter between the ephemerality of live performance and the potentiality of its documentation.  In 2015, Krantz was in residence at The Kitchen (NYC) in a program called Dance and Process that concluded with a final performance.  This film is the culmination of her ideas from this residency, wherein, the filming occurred on stage with the performer in real time.  This piece offers a unique and peripatetic encounter between the camera, the performer and the viewing audience.
