Brian Feldman Projects is Central Florida’s premiere experimental time-based performance art outfit. Dinners on stage with real life families, leaping off ladders for 24 hours, group tours in Google translated Swedish through IKEA, cabaret performed under the covers - this is what we do. http://brianfeldman.com

Under the Covers @ Orlando Museum of Art | Bios:

Brian Feldman is the most famous performance artist in Orlando history. Best known for his 24 hour Leap Year Day performance in front of Orlando City Hall (“Now none of us can say that Orlando is boring.” Elizabeth Maupin, Orlando Sentinel), some of his other nearly 50 time-based art projects include having reality theater dinner with his family (The Feldman Dynamic), leading a group tour in Google translated Swedish through IKEA® (ChanuIKEA®), adapting a Shakespearean classic 140 characters at a time (Twitter of the Shrew), showing what the end of analog television looked like - twice (The End of Television: Part II & III), reciting text messages (txt), trying to cry (Trying to Cry), sleeping (sleepwalk), reading (Brian Feldman Reads This Newspaper In Its Entirety) and eating (Brian Feldman Eats Everything Off The Menu At Loving Hut). He made his professional acting debut at age 10 with Orlando Shakespeare Theater (Macbeth). Recent collaborations include TheDailyCity.com (Mobile Art Show), Orlando Puppet Festival (PuppetSlam) and Voci Dance (iMove//dance/blog/art_). Upcoming projects feature observation (Indiana Eatin’ | 4 Oct 2009), mystery (If You Give Brian Feldman Some Money | 22 Oct - 21 Nov 2009) and boiling 8-9 minutes, stirring frequently, until “al dente” (Spaghetti Dinner | 26 Oct 2009). @BrianFeldman | brianfeldman.com
