CAPITALIST DUETS

Screen Shot 2016-01-16 at 8.55.32 PMScreen Shot 2016-01-16 at 9.00.50 PMA rhizomatic dance staging the practical anarchy of business-as-usual. CAPITALIST DUETS employs free-market dramaturgy, a structure for composition that’s applied to every relation that the production touches. From dancer and choreographer to theatre technician and art-presenting partner. Everyone involved holds the status of performer. And every performer dances according to the same rules. When attention becomes currency, market behaviour becomes a hackable system. 

Created and Performed by Public Recordings. Produced with support from the Toronto Arts Council and Canada Council for the Arts
