ACTORS AT WORK (2006)
I filed Actors' Equity contracts for union actors to go to their day jobs. While the contracts were in force, the workplace legally became a theater, and job performance legally "a performance". These job performances were documented with a series of production stills.
As per union rules, various documents—programs, budget projections, contracts, ground plans—were filed with Equity. In these documents, job conditions become theatrical circumstances. “Audience capacity” is determined by workplace occupancy; “costume budget” is derived from the cost of a set of work clothes; “actor’s compensation” is based on the employee’s hourly wage, etc.
