THE SECOND WOMAN by Nat Randall & collaborators for Liveworks Festival

In an epic feat of endurance, Nat Randall performs a single scene inspired by John Cassavetes’ 1977 film Opening Night, on repeat for 24 continuous hours. Starring opposite Randall are 100 different men who range in age, background and acting ability. Each scene is captured on camera and projected live alongside the staged performance. Through the repetition of this intimate encounter, The Second Woman explores the complex interplay between identity, performance, gender, emotion, cinema and reality.

Premiering at Melbourne’s Next Wave Festival last year, The Second Woman was named as one of Guardian Australia’s “10 most groundbreaking shows by women” in 2016. This enthralling performance and cinematic experience—coming to Sydney for the first time—is not to be missed.
