Molly Soda

 

 "'Our Song' is a contemporary take on vito acconci's "Theme Song" (1973) - using the same method of seduction and interplay with contemporary music I will be talking to the audience via a webcam on stage. I will be present but you will not be able to see me. I'm interested in re-contextualizing acconci's piece to see what happens/how it changes based on the fact that I am female."
