The Peculiar Case of Clara Parsons - 2003
Video design & direction.
Desire, Danger, and all that Jazz...
Set in jazz-age New York, Wild Night American Dream tells the story of Mr. Black, a wide-eyed New Zealander seeking adventure in the big apple. He finds himself at a wild party hosted by Kitty, a flirtatious femme fatale with a deadly scheme on her mind. It is then Black's life takes an unexpected turn - 'boy, does he get burned'.
With live jazz, stunning visuals and a twisting hot script acted by a cast of stars, this is one of the clinic's most famous performances.
Commissioned by Bats Theatre, Wellington, New Zealand.
Performed: 2001 - Premiere Wellington International Jazz Festival and STAB season, New Zealand. 2001 - Creation, Christchurch, New Zealand.
