Music Box. A site-specific live performance created for the Off the Strip new genres festival, Contemporary Arts Center, Las Vegas, NV. Performance took place at the Don’t Tell Mama piano bar, downtown Las Vegas/ Fremont Street, October 2010

Music Box was a one-night live performance on the streets of downtown Las Vegas and inside of a classic Las Vegas piano bar. Performance actions were markedly slowed, in stark contrast to the pace of the surrounding environment, while speakers hidden on each performer’s body played a slow, faint recording from a vintage music box— frequently overshadowed by competing external sounds.
