Infused with sonic landscapes performed live by Reggie Watts, Dutch A/V is a live-edited environmental film that seeks to replicate the first hand experience of being a flâneur in another city. Reggie - with collaborator/playwright Tommy Smith and Seattle journalist Brendan Kiley - traveled to Holland and shot over 26 hours of footage, exploring its cities using spy-glasses that recorded everything they saw and heard. Dutch A/V seeks to re-present this footage using projection technology and stereophonic sound, turning the interior space into portals to a foreign landscape thousands of miles away.
"Nakedly entertaining! ...Wouldn't it be strange if this is what the future of theatre looks like?" -Variety
