Diptych (death of a comedian) (2018) Performance
A performance written and curated by Chase Szakmary.
One performer stands upon a podium, a burger podium. A voice over plays while the performer stands motionless. The voice over continues and another performer enters the set dressed in a suit he moves around looking at the podium and other performer. Interacting with the crowd he takes a drink and hands it over to the 1st performer. He moves around the space taking a shirt and trousers measuring up as if to fit the suit, all the while interacting with the crowd.
