About the performance

Shoot Me is a mixture of performance, video production, and concert.  Using both old and new techniques, a short film is shot live, edited, and played back with live music throughout. A chaotic duet, where the performers must double as cameramen, technitions and each other, resulting in a short film, with a few surprises.

"I am the kino-eye, I am the mechanical eye, I am the machine that shows you the world as only a machine can see it. From now on I will be liberated from immobility. I am in perpetual movement. I draw near to things, I move myself away from them, I enter into them, I travel toward the snout of a racing horse, I move through crowds at top speed, I percede soldiers on attack, I take off with airplanes, I flip over on my back, I fall down and stand back up as bodies fall down and stand back up.  " 
Dziga Vertov
