Are You Buying?
The solo performance Are You Buying? uses dance, immersive video projection, and custom software to bring a dream-like retail widow to life. Appropriating and remixing imagery, movement, and sound from advertisements from the 1900s to present, the performance playfully deconstructs the narrative of an idealized white female consumer and points to capitalism’s role in shaping the this Eurocentric historical narrative.
Are You Buying? has been performed at the Providence Fringe Festival (Providence, RI) and Boston Cyberarts (Jamaica Plain, MA). Research and development was funded by a Boston Foundation Live Arts Boston (LAB) grant.
