Protocol X May 9th at HDTS

In a remote desert location near 29 Palms, (Joshua Tree), California, a group of 24 inexperienced participants will engage in a improvised simulated military exercise. My work, titled Protocol X, will be presented by High Desert Test Sites from May 9th to 11th. The “exercise” will unfold over three days and its documentation will later become material for a full-length video.

Protocol X is social theater that addresses the physical registers of contemporary theatre combined with military practice, drawing from my own military experience. The project encapsulates a number of possible scenarios, architectural models, and physical modes of these practices in a theatrical performance, and is characterized by repetitions and disruptions, which reveals the absurdity embedded in this 'reality'.
