The Waiting Room is a virtual interractive tango, with a double screen projection. Six projected performers enter, sit and wait, or leave to dance a tango on the opposite side of the room. Their movements, persona, gender and the music they dance to shift and change as a result of the position and movement of the viewers in the room, who are remotely sensed by infra-red camera.

Exhibited at Sheffield Railway Station, 1998 as part of Site Gallery's Shunted
