First Performances

Time Based Art

Jan 12-21


Daniel Fish (NYC)
DON’T LOOK BACK

(previously untitled)

Daniel Fish’s new work offers us a radical departure from his previous text-driven work and seeks to find out what happens when the actors and text are gone and the talking stops. 

Made for a very small audience, Fish ruminates on the passage of time and our perception of it. Set and light drive the undrive-able and Philip White’s score subverts expectations of aural perception.


Concept and Direction: Daniel Fish
Set: Perrine Villemur
Light: Barbara Samuels
Music: Philip White
