The Rollergrooves AKA Tai Snaith and Narinda Reeders are a performance installation duo who have been working together for the past 5 years practicing the art of painful stillness amongst other things. Engaging light, video, photography, costume and the internet, the Rollergrooves re-visit the 19th century idea of Tableau Vivant (French for Living Picture) in a contemporary context. Appearing in rollerskates and their signature red and white costumes, The Rollergrooves create stylized frozen moments in time, little deaths, immortalized failures and make palpable the tension between sex and death.

The Rollergrooves often choose to be parasites of pre-organised social modes such as exhibitions, parties, political protests, air travel, shopping festivals, car club rallies and have created such works in Melbourne, Glasgow, Edinburgh, the Isle of Skye, Mexico and San Francisco.
