by Tyler Peterson - Sep 25, 2013

Building upon his 2010 production, TOM RYAN THINKS HE'S JAMES MASON STARRING IN A MOVIE BY NICHOLAS RAY…Daniel Fish reunites with actors Christina Rouner and Thomas Jay Ryan on a new work that fuses theater, cinema, and environmental installation. ETERNAL is Fish's most conceptually ambitious production to date. In August, Fish assembled a film crew to shoot Ryan and Rouner performing the final scene of the 2004 film ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND in a continuous loop for two hours - the only constraint: that they must keep going, no matter what happens. The unedited two channel video of their performance will be projected on screens that face each other from across the space. The audience sits between the lovers.
