unedited platforms

Tokyo, Japan – November, 2020
vocal performance with video installation

Performance with Ami Yamasaki. Takes place in Shibuya, over the city streets. In 2020 we needed some platforms to work and play, even just to look at your face and to talk. You are the one who went along with the platform, changed the shape, and strayed out of the platform. This performance by Ami Yamasaki and Michael Smith-Welch – “UNEDITED PLATFORMS” – moves freely around the platforms/levels of a building standing in the cluttered landscape of Shibuya, escaping from the hand of editing, but grasping it, and playing with it.
