Many Takes Later (and many more to come): Reinventing Madame Butterfly’s Suicide Scene

2003. Multimedia installation, color, sound
Duration and dimensions vary.

This video installation re-imagines an alternate fragmented ending to the epic production, Madame Butterfly. It is comprised of a 3-channel projection, 3-channel television installation, and performance documented by video. Through a mediated experience of live performance, ruptured subtitles, and animated reflections, this piece aims to challenge traditional forms and genres of storytelling.
