Give A Little Applause for The Midnight Moment

Give A Little Applause for The Midnight Moment

An eerily endless loop gives the Times Square audience a performer’s viewpoint, with their very own round of applause. Alex Prager’s Applause depicts the underlying tension between a performer and audience, continuing Prager’s psychological examination of the human condition and the complex dynamics that exist between the individual and the crowd. By inserting the viewer in the role of performer, looking out on the audience who are applauding on an eerily endless loop, Prager exposes the heightened emotional effect of the two opposing viewpoints. In partnership with The Broadway League & Lehmann Maupin.

Prager’s elaborately staged scenes tap into a shared cultural memory drawing inspiration from a wide range of influences and references including Hollywood cinema, experimental films, popular culture and street photography.
