Text The Character of The Chorus

The Chorus is a feature length film project that investigates the notion of the chorus, a character in Ancient Greek drama of “the people” that has been largely lost from contemporary popular forms of media. The film interrogates the structure of fiction by re-inserting the character of the chorus into a contemporary film (Star Wars Episode 3: The Revenge of the Sith, 2005). Situating the chorus as an example of “the part of no part” the film seeks to question the relation between its disappearance and our present plights of democratic discontent.
