Homing Pigeon and Friends is a performative video installation for four audience members. Maintaining the original timeline of a screen capture made while surfing the Web, Yari Stilo displaces himself through time and space attempting a conversation with things, animals and people. A full video projection, a huge sofa and a big book are the performance’s tools that are present in this live negotiation with the audience. Through the use of sound, physicality, sight and more, the audience is encouraged to move between the screen and their personal space. Could exhausting the self from itself allow something more than just monologues between the self? Could the same choreography create a conversation that takes space and subjects into consideration each time?
Concept, editing, choreography and performance: Yari Stilo
Music: Johann Sebastian Bach, Tango with Lions
