The Surveillance Solos at the Santa Cruz Fringe Festival

The Surveillance Solos will be presented as a director’s pick at the first annual Santa Cruz Fringe Festival!

The Surveillance Solos employ a combination of farce and stark honesty to question, in a world where so much information is easily accessible, just what can be considered private or intimate, and how quickly small deviations from “normal” behavior become suspicious. Four solos based on surveiling the quotidian habits of the dancers Carol McDowell, Christine Suarez and Ally Voye, intertwine and accrue meaning over the course of the evening, drawing the principal observing agent into the lives of her subjects until she is caught performing the motions she has studied. Additional performances by Rebecca Alson-Milkman. Original graphic design by Katherine Quan, film by Ally Voye and sound design by Aaron Drake.

Richly gestural, delicately nuanced, subtly subversive – Surveillance Solos provokes questions about privacy, government control, and human contact. The work is patient, specific to its goals and performed beautifully by some of LA’s most revered dancers.
