from 7pm – ?
Two participants will discuss a scene from Blake Edwards’ film “The Pink Panther” in which actors David Niven and Robert Wagner, dressed in gorilla suits, attempt to steal a diamond from a safe only to end up experiencing a strange mirroring effect.
The two participants, who are wearing the same color sweaters, will be sitting in two almost identical rooms of different color. They will be out of one another’s sight, and will communicate using walkie talkie head sets. The colors of each room are derived from pants worn by the participants.
A third walkie talkie head set will receive the conversation which is then processed with digital effects and amplified outside the two rooms.
