Edited video from a live 4-hour public performance Public Disturbance where professional actors were hired to pose as couples and reenact various domestic based arguments from movie scipts in a public setting. The actual performance included 3 separate actor-couples each performing different fight scenes. In this video version of the work I focus on just one couple and follow their re-occurring arguement in various locations, over the course of the evening.
