ELECTRIC STONEHENGE  CLICK TO READ  MPEG4 CLIP 1MIN

A hexagonal outdoor theatre built on a hill in Brooksville commanding a view of rural Florida and made of telephone poles supporting rigging and platforms up to 25 feet high.  The audience sits inside the hexagon and views the landscape through screens of curtains and water mist projected from pipes above.  During night performances images are projected on these screens.  Performances are site specific and relate to the weather and the animals.  Performances include “Primavera” and “Wet Weather” (also the title of a poetic documentary of a performance).    Photographed & Realized by Charles Lyman.

 
 
 
  

A BEND IN THE RIVER        MPEG4 FULL 8 MIN

The performance takes place on the Hillsborough River in Tampa, at a bend known as Hannah's Whirl.  Hannah is seen in the evening light in her canoe and dressed in a long Victorian Gown and parasol.  As the light fails she is backed by a fifty-foot floating stage modeled on a Civil War ironclad.   The performance is witnessed by an audience in tents and on piers on the riverbank.  The film here is documentation of the performance and edited by Peter Melaragno.  2011 (RT 8:00)

Realized by Charles Lyman, David Audet and Peter Melaragno.   (Performance date: May 18, 2011)
