In a rehearsal studio-turned-laboratory, a small group of audience members peep through a one-way mirror at a performer responding to choreographic instructions, derived from the canon of social science experiments. As the audience’s perception shifts and extends, this iterative and playful performance amplifies and destabilizes the act of watching.
