Lauer / Conway Flip
On February 14, 2017, at approximately 7:00am, Matt Lauer interviewed Kellyanne Conway on NBC's Today Show about the resignation of Michael Flynn, President Trump's National Security Advisor.
This project features a verbatim re-enactment of the interview, performed by actors who have carefully studied Conway’s and Lauer’s words, gestures, and movements. Four different gender configurations allow us to consider the following:
- What happens to your perception of the interview if a participant's gender is inverted?
- What tactics are the participants using?
- When do the tactics succeed and when do they fail?
Featuring Analisa Gutierrez, Joe Salvatore, Ashley Renee Thaxton-Stevenson, and Andy Wagner
