Detroit, Michigan US 11/1999

Samuel Beckett's, Krapps Last Tape: The tape recorder in the original script was replaced by a video projector of the actor portraying Krapp at age 39 which I videotaped. I also included some additional minimal footage to illustrate Krapps thoughts.

Also, in the theater's adjacent bar, on a monitor looped an additional video, After The Last Tape, that I made for the event. The video is an extension of the play; Krapp falls into a nightmare. This video was shown at the Museum of New Art's International Video Festival, Detroit, 01/2002.

Director: John Jakary / Videos: Julie Meitz / Actor: Andre Latyszewsky
