Performa 13 Shingerview: Ryan McNamara

Posted: 11/21/2013 11:41 am

I had the opportunity to talk to one of the "artists to watch" at Performa 13, Ryan McNamara. Ryan's MEƎM: A Story Ballet About the Internet is an immersive performance experience that explores Internet Culture.

I opened the conversation with Ryan, by asking him what the best piece of career advice he ever received was. "Make work. People bang their heads against the wall because no one is paying attention, but you just need to keep working," he said. "You just have to keep doing it even if no one is paying attention, so just make stuff."

Watch as I talk to him about his performance, on what it means to be a part of an audience, the power of participation, and live experiences.
