The Because You’re Here Show
The Because You’re Here Show

2012, Live Performance, Workshop@ WAH Center, Brooklyn, NY

The Because You’re Here Show is a performance set inside an abstract talk show environment. Three performers – Host, Guest and Make-up Artist examine the concept of communicating love and comfort through gesture, movement, words, and sound. The guest goes back and forth from a seated position in communication with the host to a standing improvisational dance in front of the audience, accompanied by live drumming. A live-feed projection is used to make the subtleties of facial choreography and hand gestures more visible.
