How to .faint (Fan Riot mashup)

Digital Video 6.30

Supported by Arts Council England, 2015

 

Tips by fans on how to faint at a concert in hope of getting carried over the barrier and onto the stage to meet their idols were extracted from Internet forums, and re-worked into a musical score, video, live performance and instruction manual.

 

This moving image mashup looks at how fainting becomes a tactic for crossing thresholds between audience and performer, conscious and unconscious within the highly regulated space of the concert arena, as well as an imaginary choreography practiced by a bored youth subculture.
