A few weeks after being invited to perform After All on September 29th at 7:30 pm, for Dixon Place’s Crossing Boundaries (curated by Marcia Monroe), I was surprised to receive an e-mail informing me that the floor of the theater will be painted red for the month of September. My costume is red and collaborating video artist Andrew Gurian was planning to project from the balcony, from where the video will spill on the floor as well as the walls.

Luckily, he is open-minded about this turn of events. He says we will have to wait until we see the color and finish of the paint and try projecting onto the newly-colored floor to find out how a red floor will affect the video projection. If the red is very dark, for example, we may have to rethink the placement of the projector and its spill. It is also possible that where the video is red, projecting it onto a red floor may result in white light.
