Excerpts from EVENING WITHOUT ANGELS
Created and performed by Jil Guyon
Lighting: Emma Rivera
Performed in silence at Glasshouse ArtLifeLab, Brooklyn, NY, 2018
Evening without Angels was presented as part of Glasshouse ArtLifeLab's 'Rear Window’ performance series. The living room window of the Lab served as a frame for the performance as well as a surface separating audience and performer, lending a film-like experience of the event.
The series was created to challenge both audience and performer—exposing participants to the "social contagion" of acting as voyeurs/spectacle in an attempt to explore the very act of looking and being looked at once isolated from the gallery/theater setting and planted in the everyday realm.
