Andrew Schneider – Acting Stranger (US, 2014)
20 minutes | Segal Theatre
I write very short scenes. No exposition, no inciting incident, no denouement. We act them together, you and I, having never rehearsed, discussed, or met. These scenes are videotaped as documentation and made available through a website. The film is a document, a by-product of the ongoing process exploring intimacy between strangers.
*Followed by a brief discussion with the artist.
