Rebecca Alson-Milkman // Show: The Surveillance Solos
Richly gestural, delicately nuanced, subtly subversive - Surveillance Solos provokes questions about privacy, government control, and human contact. The work is patient, specific to its goals and performed beautifully by some of LA's most revered dancers.
-- Joel Smith, Political Moves Blogspot
The Surveillance Solos employ a combination of farce and stark honesty to question, in a world where so much information is easily accessible, just what can be considered private or intimate, and how quickly small deviations from "normal" behavior become suspicious. Four solos based on surveiling the quotidian habits of the dancers Carol McDowell, Taisha Paggett, Christine Suarez and Ally Voye, intertwine and accrue meaning over the course of the evening, drawing the principal observing agent into the lives of her subjects until she is caught performing the motions she has studied.. Additional performances by Rebecca Alson-Milkman and Justin Zsebe. Original graphic design by Katherine Quan, film by Ally Voye and sound design by Aaron Drake.
"In [The Surveillance Solos], all our actions matter, and the universe is not indifferent. It is as if the smallest things we do become important, because they are registered by another person."
