"The Boy Friend," a 1950's musical by Sandy Wilson, is about English girls in the 1920's who summer in the south of France and are all looking for boyfriends. My ongoing project, "The Boyfriend," appropriates this musical song by song - one video for each song - recontextualizing the music to explore deeply intimate experiences. Along with performing in and editing these videos, this is the only project thus far that I am also shooting myself, creating a sort of closed feedback loop in the creation process.
