WATCHING ME / WATCHING YOU is a performance exploring the subtly of oppression within everyday gestures. An ongoing collaboration between Joshua Kent, Matthew Nicholas and Courtney Mackedanz, the performance is crafted in the shadow of accessible pornography and mediated digital flesh. Employing devised and quotational choreography, audiences watch three bodies move within a sparse environment, speaking texts written by strangers and performing dances acquired from television and the Internet. WATCHING ME / WATCHING YOU investigates the spectatorship of live performance and the utility of the gaze within forces of domination, asking audiences to investigate their own culpability within dynamics of presentation.
