WORD OF THE PIG (2016)

Street performance and video piece

Performed by Zoë Collins

Act I Sound Score by James Dumile Goddard

Act II Sound Score by Tobias Rochman 

Word of the pig is an absurdist performance composed by the interactions between an object, a subject and a trigger. The composition is performed in pedestrian spaces of public access with artificial lighting, as an intervention in the form of a Street Opera. From the documentation of a series of street operas performed around the city of Montreal, has emerged a 12-minute video piece also titled Word of the Pig. Both as a live performance and as a video installation, Word of the Pig speaks about how individuals negotiate spaces through notions of translation, limitation, equality, obedience and resistance.

 

Video installation presented at Never Apart, Fall Program, Montreal, 2016.
