The Boyfriend ( 2016-Ongoing) is a series of videos based on the 1950's musical "The Boy Friend," by Sandy Wilson. The original play is about a group of English girls in the 1920's who summer in the south of France and who are all looking for boyfriends. The Boyfriend appropriates this musical song by song, recontextualizing the music to explore intimacy, vulnerability, the body and and how these issues intersect with our current political moment. Along with performing and editing these videos, I am also shooting them myself, creating a sort of closed feedback loop in the creation process. When the project is finished, there will be 12 videos in all.
