SET is a site-specific work that delves into ideas of tension and seeks to trigger a sense of disorientation from within. A free fall into the unfamiliar, audience members sit anywhere in the 360 degree performance and multichannel video projection space. SET references cinematic genres of horror, sci-fi, and psychological thriller within each of its 8 episodes, tapping into the viewer’s fears of the unknown.

ON VIEW @ THE BASS MUSEUM AUGUST 2013
Public installation and opera performance. Presented by YoungArts and The Dorsch Gallery.
The work consists of two elevated structures architecturally personifying Orpheus and Eurydice of Greek mythology. In the myth, Orpheus, a musician with god-like talent, travels to the underworld to retrieve his wife, the nymph Eurydice. With his music he softens the heart of Hades, who permits him to return with his wife, on the condition that he walk ahead and not look back until they have both exited the underworld. He emerges and looks back before Eurydice crosses over, and, in doing so loses her forever. The tower representing Orpheus provides a stage for an aria from Monteverdi’s “L’Orfeo”. At various points in time throughout the fair, the musical performances will take the forms of either a live acoustic solo or a digital projection with audio. The performer references the myth by facing away from the audience, utilizing a large satellite dish. The parabolic shape of the dish focuses the music and transmits it some 90 feet away to an audience in a pastoral opera box tower, acting as Eurydice.
