Corrieri, Augusto (2019) Play to delete. [Performance]

Full text not available from this repository.


Play to delete was a work commissioned by the Chicago Cultural Center, and developed at High Concept Labs, Chicago. It was made in response to Goat Island’s We Got a Date (1989), a work of dissonant actions and sounds, layered chaos, difficult sexual encounters, and ending on the arresting image of eyes bleeding through a golden blindfold.
In Play to Delete, themes and materials from the video recording and archival remains of the Goat Island work are reframed and transformed: the result is a solo work, a kind of arrogant lounge lizard casually walking about the room, getting into 'poses' from the original work, offering snippets of wisdom, and ending with a strange Michael Jackson Billy Jean tribute dance.
Play to delete also featured Chicago pianist Paul Hamilton.
