Nut

 

Screen and stage space is collapsed and confused as 3 common edible nuts perform in anthropomorphized roles. The heroic hazelnut, trickster walnut, and humble peanut act through our notions of them as they articulate interstitial-like cracks in the narrative expectations of screen and stage based popular entertainment. The 3-part video employs the power of music, humor, the absurd; and the ideals of cinema and theater in exploration of the in-between moments as experienced through film promotion, intermission, and the end/finale. The dual meaning of nut (an edible kernel and the eccentric or crazy person) is fully embraced in this affectionate inquiry into the structures of meaning and experience in theater and film.
