Daniel Barrow, Everytime I See Your Picture I Cry

When: Sept. 7-8, 8:30 p.m. and Wed., Sept. 9, 6:30 p.m. 2009

Ever since fancy computer machines took over the world, you probably haven’t thought much about overhead projectors—but Daniel Barrow has. Barrow’s “manual animation” techniques mix live manipulation of transparent overlays with video backgrounds, music, and live narration. The colorful but spooky images float gently around the screen, like a curio cabinet of porcelain figurines unleashed from gravity. In this piece, Barrow tells the story of a garbage man who stalks his fellow citizens, collecting bits of their lives for his independent phone book. Death follows him around in the form of a psychotic killer, unmaking the garbage man’s work by killing the people he catalogs. This 60-minute story features an original soundtrack by Amy Linton. Says Barrow, “It’s a performance set in a community that stands at the gates of hell, which sounds very dark—and it is—but I’m still in the room to moderate the gloom and darkness.” WR
