Grand Noche (por Drama)
Grand Noche (por Drama) recasts an episode of HBO’s television series, Entourage, for broadcast on the Spanish-language channel, Univision – but, in the process, something goes horribly wrong! The show’s storyline and imagery are torn apart, opening up a liminal field of affective intensities and underdetermined resonances. The piece explores the nature of translation and the intersection of sound, image, and text in the constitution of meaning. It asks, what kind of social relation is the “entourage”? What is the pleasure afforded by its depiction as video? How are its dynamics changed when cast in a novel context? And what, after all, makes for a great night?
