Cold Feet, 2010, performance, 17 minutes

Ashley is a 19-year-old aspiring actress who does not yet possess the confidence to land a lead role. I interviewed her about her inhibitions and used her answers to compose a monologue that she performed on a stage in an empty building in upstate New York. There was no audience present, just Ashley and the audience she imagined before her. She is at once performer and spectator, portraying herself for herself.
