WHEN NOBODY IS WATCHING

What does it mean to be an artist? 

I was invited to film a performance laboratory and the island of Frioul, located outside of Marseille in Southern France. 16 individuals, poets, dancers, musicians, camera people, technical assistants, got together for a 12 hour experiment, an overnight full moon performance without an audience.

“Artist” is a label many of the performers did not want to embrace. What we talked about instead is a reflection on process, focus, and ideas. 

When Nobody is Watching is a 16-part series of interviews reflecting on art, performance, audiences and process.
