Eliza Doyle 

b. 1993, Paris, France

Based in New York City 


Eliza Doyle works with moving image and performance to ply at the relations between director and actor, documentarian and documented. She forges improvisational collaborations with performers, who participate as neither straightforward actors nor documentary subjects, their role lying somewhere between the two. Eliza has collaborated with bodybuilders, professional wrestlers, survivalists, castellers, dancers, life coaches, reality TV actors, and numerous volunteers from the internet.
