Maybe if you choreograph me you’ll feel better is an interactive performance for two audience members set between a street and a second story window.

Maybe if you choreograph me you will feel better is a relationship between one male audience member and one female performer. The audience member stares out a second story window and hears a female voice.  She tells him to look out into the street. Somewhere, among the dozens of passers by, he will find a woman who will obey his every move. At the same time one female audience member lists and watches passively from an adjacent room.

Using wireless headphones, Tania creates a deceptively simple piece about gender dynamics, voyeurism and cinema.
