Live film narration, or "neo-benshi" is a format used
for rescripting & reinterpreting scenes from feature
films. On stage narrators (the Japanese term is benshi
) use words alone to infiltrate and subvert the muted scenes.
Unsuspecting, clipped and
muzzled films undergo live overdubbing as writers sync themselves to the silver screen.
