Scene Three

In the Dress Rehearsal’s conclusion, construction scaffold emerges from the wall.  A continuously cycling orange air pump is connected to a tall vinyl bag by a long tube; 10 pound bags of oranges are visible anchoring corn hole boards.  TV trays with faux wood veneer are installed in the foreground as if they were a functional multi-channel video. 

An air pump regulates the pressure in a vinyl bag, keeping the veneer in place so it can be mounted to a substrate.  This scene restages the construction process, making the privacy of the woodshop public and foregrounding equipment that would not seem out of place in the address’s previous incarnation as a gay male sex club.
