Video Is The Only Constant March 3rd 2010: Marcus Orlandi
Never Better, UK, live performance
A lonely chair, a broom on the floor and a white cloth folded twice neatly on the back of the chair. A man is forced inside for no reason but his own. Time places him within two scenarios both of which he’d rather give up on. “The outside is dead and coming closer” he retorts and tells us of the mindset that got him there.
Inspired by the words of Samuel Beckett and Stephen Sondheim, Never Better is a “Live Radio Play” - an invitation for audiences to piece together a time-lapse story and be unsettled by the constant stress of strict timing and opportunity for mistake.
Marcus Orlandi has performed in London and Liverpool, specialising in script based new media productions working with choreography, film and sound.
