Articulation Performances: DO IT UP THIS WEEK, PERFORMERS.

FOR TUES&THURS PERFORMERS: Check the “about” tab for principles we have talked about that link techniques of “fighting for” and techniques of artistry.
Otherwise, go in and just DO IT, you got this – at least half of performance is, as we have worked on and talked about together, not caring what people think. Stand in your fullest body and self (don’t do anything half, do everything double your normal “size” at least: volume of your voice, space you take up in the room, physical choices – think back to our warm ups, and even the workshop with Phil: USE that stuff! USE our warm ups!
How did we walk around the room with varying physical qualities, levels, weights, obstacles, motivations, how did we push against walls, turn around and surprise each other, share weight, let our bodies move us first, before we could rush to thoughts or judgement?)
…You only get points marked off if you’re not original, i.e. originally you. So don’t be afraid of yourself, this is called “Articulation Performance” because it’s about standing in who you are, and speaking as this poem speaks through you, as history speaks you. So be powerful, be ironic, fight for with humor, pleasure, a sanctity in yourself, and what you believe in).
Prepare props beforehand. Come 15min early if you need to test lights or set up blocks etc., run something in the space.
