|Abstract:||A three-hour durational performance and artist's talk around this project. The Ballad of Isosceles is a one-to-one performance for two people at a time exploring voyeurism, the Lynchian iconography of the chanteuse, and the strange rhythms of vicarious pleasure. It is an origin myth about the birth of envy in a previously innocent world. Isosceles, born out of wedlock from infidelity, tells the story of how she came to be - even as she pins you to your seat as the moth to her flame. The piece explores innovative dramaturgical strategies by putting Girard's (1996) theory of 'triangulation' into spatial relations - creating an affect of envy through a particular audience set-up. As such, the piece continues my research into immersive performance strategies and the ways in which the one-to-one exchange might reveal larger macro-relations of capital and desire.|
