2004 5th 7a*11d Festival

d2d.2 = direct to documentation
Friday October 29 8 pm (Program 1)
Saturday October 30 8 pm (Program 2)
XPACE

Co-sponsored by Vtape

Each festival we invite artists on the basis of their submitted documentation, knowing that we may not be getting the whole picture, that the camera inevitably lies, and that the direct visceral experience of the live performance art action is what it’s really all about. But sometimes we love the video even though we can’t bring the artist – so we created this program of video documentation.

Some of these documents record fragments of longer pieces, some are works for the performer and camera alone, and this year two artists made work specifically for d2d. Assembled for 7a*11d by Rochelle Holt and Johanna Householder.
