A participatory project that is equal parts endurance test & cinematic star-maker.
The Kitchener City Hall rotunda becomes an interactive set for filmmaker Dylan Reibling and his crew in this constantly moving installation that asks its audience to contribute their sparks of spontaneity.
In the middle of the rotunda around an 8’x8’ stage will be a circular dolly track with a film camera mounted on top, and that rig is manually pushed by crew in a slow orbit around the stage, capturing one epic single take of whatever happens in the middle of the space. One-by-one, festival-goers are invited to take centre stage and use it in whatever manner they see fit, with the dramatic architecture of City Hall as their background. A live stream from the camera will also be projected onto an adjacent wall.
As both a performance and tool for performance, 24-Hour Dolly engages its audience in an unparalleled experience of what happens both in front of and behind the camera. The piece is also a remounting of Reibling’s 12-Hour Dolly project, originally produced on a street corner from 7pm to 7am at Toronto’s Nuit Blanche in 2011.
