Performance / Duration: 20 min
A pre-recorded male voice recounts a seemingly significant occurrence. There is a man, another man and a third man. The men are unrehearsed, they receive a briefing in advance and do their best to keep up with the voice’s words. Several forces are at play simultaneously. The roles are continuously shifting and distinctions fade. What we see and what we hear falls in and out of synch.
Royalty is a preliminary study for the performance Counterpoint A.
