About

SPARKGAP is a film that may or may not be performed with. It is about architecture, city planning, Black Power, Sound/Noise, Boston and electronic theater music pieces. If it is performed, loudspeakers should be connected to the projector with long cables. On one side of the audience, two White Persons carry loudspeakers and move up and down the aisle acting very passive. On the other side of the audience, two Black Persons carry loudspeakers and act very violently with them jumping in and out at/of the audience. A fifth performer periodically shines a spotlight on the performers' faces so that their skin color is known and to remind us of other things. –R. L.
