Definition of Man

2017

Theatrical & Multimedia Production

A sexier, more violent Waiting for Godot, Definition of Man is a physicalized post-modern decreation myth that won the Hollywood Fringe 2017 Best in Dance and Physical Theatre and "Ripest Show" award. Defintion of Man investigates the human drive to communicate and the inevitable breakdown that results from the inherent incompleteness of language. The one-act was created by Nikki Muller and Jason Rosario by synthesizing personal narratives, academic texts and Russian counterbalancing to explore issues of identity, race, gender performance and communicative breakdown.

Love Is...

2017

Theatrical & Multimedia Production

A unique and thought-provoking experience , in which the audience surrounds the stage/performance area and giant panels which are projection surfaces for the multimedia run from floor to ceiling are surrounding them. 

 

The evening is divided into three acts, each act consists of three performances, each performance begins with an introduction/reveal of an artist. These reveals are videos showing the artist in a manner both personal and vulnerable. Upon conclusion of each reveal, the artist performs an act that brings their definition of love to light.

Installation

The Multimedia Installation of Love Is…  can be presented in any space. Perfect for art galleries and non-traditional spaces.

 

This installation includes a unique set up of panels and screens which display the artist's "reveal" as well as a filmed version of the artist's act. The reveal is a black and white video that reveals an in-depth look at the artist and his definition of love. 

 

This piece invites everyone to think about what LOVE means and create a personalized definition of LOVE.

Afflicted Nature

2015

Film/Textile Exhibit

 

The piece "Afflicted Nature" was conceived to raise awareness about the current state of the HIV/AIDS pandemic.  The inspirations for the piece draw from the creation of the AIDS quilt/Names Project and the Tony Award winning play "Angels in America". 

Presented using large-scale projection this piece allows us to see the last dying moments of Prior’s life and glimpses of what lies beyond.

 

Confining Comforts

2014

Multimedia installation

 

DConstruction Arts was commissioned by AJMJ Productions to create a scene to be part of a larger exhibit which explores the relationship of American consumers to their design and home purchases. DCON depicts a 1950s American dream.  It's Sunday afternoon, she's mixing martinis and he's cooking dinner on the grill, life couldn't be dreamier. Confining Comforts takes a satirical look and draws attention to the question, “are you the things you own?”
