Dance of Delirium
1987, 02:22 minutes, colour
The predominant features of this performance are two giant wooden structures each 14 feet high and 10 feet wide, each housing 13 video decks and 13 video monitors each of which play individually choreographed images throughout. The performers play in front of and around these structures, background and foreground continually shifting between the taped image and live action.
In the culmination of the piece, body parts appear on monitors at random and flash off to appear somewhere else until finally coalescing into human form. Like electronic marionettes, the giants reach out to each other and dance a romantic tango, their various body parts articulated on separate screens.
