‘Once More’ is a provocation regarding the nature of live performance and documentation. Shot using five cameras, this video installation documents a single performance via five individual camera angles, displayed simultaneously. Reminiscent of a 1960s sitcom in both form and content, this work draws on the historical conventions of popular television to examine current debates in performance art.
