Performance Artist Makes Australian Debut LIVE From His Apartment In Washington, D.C.
Social distancing from 16,837.98 kilometers apart!
Currently under a stay-at-home order inside his apartment located a 4 km walk from the Embassy of Australia in Washington, D.C., American performance artist Brian Feldman has wanted to be part of the Adelaide Fringe (the largest open access arts festival in the Southern Hemisphere) for over a decade. It only took a global pandemic to finally make it happen.
As part of FringeVIEW, Adelaide Fringe's answer to the coronavirus crisis, Brian brings the online version of one of his signature projects to the new virtual stage of the second-largest annual arts festival in the world.
The best show you'll write all year, #txtshow (on the internet) is a completely interactive two screen performance, featuring a mysterious character named txt (pronounced "text"), who recites dialogue written anonymously in real-time by a live audience (on the internet). Created and performed by Brian Feldman, this LIVE, interactive performance takes place on Zoom.
Content warnings: MA15+: Based entirely upon what audience members write in anonymity, this event may contain mature themes, profane language, and explicit sexual content. (All FringeVIEW events are self-rated. Adelaide Fringe is not liable for any incorrect rating.)

Brian Feldman is an award-winning performance artist and actor. He lives in Washington, D.C., a 4 km walk from the Embassy of Australia, and, as DCist noted, "In a city that has an advocacy group exploring how to "make D.C. weird" - and is still struggling - Brian Feldman is a shining beacon of eccentricity." Brian's work has been favorably compared to Marina Abramovi?, David Blaine, John Cage, Marcel Duchamp, Tehching Hsieh, and Andy Kaufman, and garnered worldwide media coverage on television, radio, in print, and online. Since 2003, he has presented 300+ performances of 125+ projects at 175+ venues and festivals through Brian Feldman Projects, one of North America's premiere presenters of experimental, time-based art. brianfeldman.com
