Say Something Bunny!

A performance and installation that annotates, illustrates, and reimagines a collection of found audio recordings from the early ‘50s.

“Say Something Bunny!” is a one-woman performance and installation that annotates, illustrates, and reimagines a collection of found audio recordings from the early ‘50s. Entering the conceit of a theatrical ‘table-read,’ a small audience finds themselves cast as members of an unforgettable Jewish family from NYC. Though participation is limited to reading along with a transcript, they become stand-ins as Kobayashi’s reveals the stranger-than-fiction narrative hidden in the recording, focusing on the dramatic life-story of the recordings’ owner, David. A custom circular table, surround sound, layered video, props, costumes, and lighting, all set up a completely novel form of spectatorship.
