Hot Box is loud, dark, foggy, sweaty, hot, drunk, and very live. Inspired by movies such as Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now and Werner Herzog’s Fitzcarraldo, a considerably drunk Brian Rogers projects real-time images of himself and another performer via a live video feed. Disjointed sounds accompany the images, creating a violently noisy sense of disorder. Within this immersive, chaotic environment, Rogers seeks to create a focused stillness that exists amidst, even in spite of, the mayhem.
