Voyeur (2007)

Voyeur is the second work in Boán's American Trilogy. It continues the exploration, begun with the work False Testimony, of the possibilities and complexities of interactions between video images and the body. In this permutation, Boán gives the audience the power to "capture" the performers's images by allowing them to film the performance from sites on the periphery of the stage space.

From the program notes:

In an act of voyeurism, the audience films in real time the intimate life of a couple, complete with all of their boredom, paranoia and aggressiveness. Will the monotone perfection of domestic life in America drive them to desperate acts against themselves and the world?
