Cyrano de Bergerac meets the U.S.'s dysfunctional political system in this video installation, which combines elements of a TV control room and a disco. The centerpiece is a public performance at the gallery, recorded live over two evenings (Nov14 and 15, starting at 7pm). Two actors, who are also former congressional aides, will assume respective roles as a political strategist and a candidate he's advising, working from a script that combines passages from Edmond Rostand’s 1897 play with material the artist culled from interviews with campaign specialists in Washington, D.C.
