Supernumeraries - Asya Ashman

You are in the first row of the cinema, having come to watch a movie to distract yourself from heartbreak. The picture is blurry and distorted, but you have a big pack of popcorn. As you shift your gaze away from the protagonist, you notice the background actors - they look odd and eerie. They look at you, and you return their gaze.

In this work, Asya refers to her experience as an 'extra' in movie production, as well as the role of background bodies within fictional realities. Through re-enactment, montage, and the gaze, performers construct a collapsing narrative that opens up new relationships between the main and supporting characters, questioning the existing hierarchies of attention.
