  1. Flight, Liz Magic Laser, 2010-2011, performance and single-channel video, 30 minutes, MoMA PS1, April 2010 and Times Square (NY), May 2011.   Featuring actors Nic Grelli, Elizabeth Hodur, Liz Micek, Michael Wiener, Lia Woertendyke and Max Woertendyke.

  2. Flight traces the historical arc of the staircase in cinema as it shifted from an arena of revolutionary struggle in Battleship Potemkin to the site of private trauma in films like The Shining. Six actors performed twenty-three foot-chases from popular films that utilize stairs. The scenes were collaged and re-staged in the midst of a live audience seated on a grand staircase. The performers incorporated the audience into a fast-paced series of actions where villains become victims and witnesses become perpetrators.
