August, '09, Montpelier
(possible sound- Morse code of our poem- looped)
we come from opposite sides of the stage- (there is no stage but we can come from the sides- like arms wrapping a round the audience)
we in black- canvas with necklace is in the center- we are profile to the audience
perform attaching the necklace between ourselves- the same way it is hung on the canvas- start at the crown of our head and follow down to the upper thigh.
Leave slack in the strings- so it remains an arc
Breathe deeply so the strings move slightly- enough to where they feel alive. I think this is the most important part for me and the whole performance can be just this.
after a couple of minutes replace strands onto the canvas
Invitation: Would you be interested in doing this performance with me this summer at VCFA?
