"Kristy Simmons and Justin Fair in collaboration at doris-mae
Look Inside is a collaborative performance piece that utilizes live actors, staged video, performance and movement to engage the audience (as pedestrians) in an ongoing street drama unfolding in front of them. Curator Thomas Drymon tapped playwright Kristy Simmons and performance artist Justin Fair to create new works and engage in an ongoing dialogue about the theme and integration of their individual pieces into a complete set.
Using the solo space of doris-mae, the performance will move from one part of the room to the next as the play is interrupted by other action. It engages the audience in the same way that a stroll down the street is punctuated by various happenings—an argument between a couple, cell phone conversations, performance, pan-handling. The venue itself, located on 14th Street NW, becomes part of the play as the sounds of traffic and passers-by become integrated into each presentation."
