Live Video at Bluestockings

killer banshee brings live, dual screen video performance to Bluestockings for a night of mesmerizing visuals and sound :: June 23rd, 2007 @ 7pm :: Bluestockings, 172 Allen St. Lower East Side NYC :: Subway: F, V to Lower East Side-Second Ave :: 212-777-6028 :: $5-10ss (NOTA: No One Turned Away for lack of funds).

killer banshee is a collaborative partnership between Eliot K Daughtry and Kriss De Jong devoted to creating challenging audiovisual art works. Calling a performance by killer banshee a VJ event fails to describe what you will see. Unlike others using live video in conjunction with dance or music events, this pair uses an arsenal of visual imagery culled from video they've shot, archival footage, their own paintings, drawings and sculpture, to reinterpret and redefine what their art is about. While the duo works in combinations with other performers, their focus is on works of their own. Armed with Laptops and projectors, these two willfully make a dance out of their art. When not working behind the video projectors, Kriss & Eliot can be found doing audio for video, recording spoken word artists, or working on their own eccentric art.
