The projected video components of ‘Super-Taster’, an interdisciplinary multi-media project developed by the University of Otago Research Grant-funded Performance Research Laboratory. The work was presented at the ‘Super-Taster: Verbatim Theatre and Food’ workshop showing at Allen Hall Theatre, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand in March 2018. The presentation was comprised of seven pieces derived from verbatim theatre research from Professor Stuart Young and Associate Professor Hilary Halba, and featured, in various combinations, elements of music, film, and dance.
'Leftovers', a short film created for 'Super-Taster', can be seen here.
A multi-media artwork incorporating live music, projected video, and soundscape, created by Jeremy Mayall and Dan Inglis. The work is a suite of 29 individual but intertwined audio-visual vignettes using film footage appropriated from The British Council Film Collection of short documentaries, with music by Jeremy Mayall. 'Glimpse' touches on a diversity of themes such as industry and human progress; memory and nostalgia; and fear, self-doubt, and the promise of the future. But the work ultimately allows the audience to create its own connotations and meanings. The piece was performed at the Arohanui Film Festival, Te Aroha, and the Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts, Hamilton, New Zealand, in October 2017 with pianist Stephen De Pledge.
A video installation consisting of looping images projected onto three wall-mounted cloth panels, accompanied by recorded music composed by Jeremy Mayall. ‘Moment of Inertia’ examines ideas of time and motion; eternity and cycles; travel; and predetermination.
