World Rehearsal Court is a large-scale media installation by Vancouver artist Judy Radul. In one area, a pre-recorded seven-channel video work presents a series of courtroom vignettes based on trial transcripts from the International Criminal Tribunals. The solemn videos contrast with live scenes captured by a series of computer-controlled cameras and displayed on an array of monitors. The two parts of the exhibit create a tension that challenges the kinds of distinctions made by courtrooms and lawyers between experience, testimony, truth, and fiction.

Through World Rehearsal Court, Radul investigates the complexities of real-life experience, the roles of new technologies in courts of law, and the compression of such complex, multi-sensory and multi-dimensional experiences into written record. The work reflects aspects of Radul's Downe's Point (2005), which explored the spatial architecture of views through a camera lens, and Describe Video (2007), which examined different kinds of "blind spots".
