The Screen Guide

The screen looks back at the viewer in a festive catalogue of histrionic gestures. TECHNO/DUMB/SHOW is a collaboration between video maker and musician, John Gillies, and performance group, The Sydney Front. Ultimately the work is about excess, about a gesturing that goes far beyond that necessary for any 'resonable' discourse. It is an excess of utter waste, but expending only the performers' bodies.
