JIB is a play written and directed by Michael McQuilken and a single-take Live Film by Sarah Lasley.
The camera shifts in and out of character throughout the play, moving from an on-the-scene news cameraperson, to an avid fan at a rock show, to a TV camera operator on Charlie Rose. Between these moments of direct engagement with the narrative, the operator assumes the role of a stagehand, drifting into background. The film version of the live show was recorded and uploaded nightly. Audience members were given access codes to view online the film version of the performance they just attended.
Performed at the Yale School of Drama in 2011.
