Choreography for three performers and a video delay system.
A piece by Pablo Lilienfeld

EJECT forms with EDIT and PLAY a trilogy exploring audiovisual ideas inside a choreographic context.

EJECT is a choreographic essay for three multiplied bodies. It draws inspiration from the cinematographic concept of framing, which defines the limits of a specific reality. Re-framing changes the point of view to include new information; the body adapts to the new configuration. If the new frame is wider, a forest appears where the trees were.

EJECT is the definitive button, the most human function of the video-player. It restores physicality to all the images contained in a video-tape. It is a qualitative jump: it doesn't make the tape move forward or backwards, it doesn’t produce any happy or unhappy ending. Instead it breaks the spell of fiction. The video-cassette softly glides out of the machine stepping up our awareness another notch. It is the escape from one representation into a larger one which contains it, zomming-out towards an infinite number of possible realities.
