“The New Fort and Swimming In There” Melina Ausikaitis


“My performance is the telling of a story called, The New Fort, followed by the video, Swimming in There. The two pieces together have a transformative effect on each other. They build into the form of a longer tale about loneliness. In between the two pieces, I will perform the beginning of the video’s whistling soundtrack and ask a few audience members to stream part of the track on their mobile devices in a layered “round” effect. The entire piece should be about 12 minutes.” -MA
