Live: Filament’s Live Shorts ST2B @ EMPAC at RPI, 10/2/10

Monday, October 4th, 2010

While EMPAC is widely known for the high-tech, limitless possibility of its genre-smashing performance art, the concept of Live Shorts was that invited artists were asked to create a performance that was constrained by a rather strict set of rules:

1.) The performance must be under 20 minutes in length.
2.) The performance area is 20 x 30-feet.
3.) The performance may include one screen, one projector and a sound system.

There were nine artists who participated in Live Shorts throughout the weekend-long Filament festival, and they were grouped together in presentations of threes.

On Saturday afternoon, we caught Live Shorts ST2B in EMPAC’s Studio 2, and here’s what we saw:
