AP Creating Environment

In my final performance I want my character to be me. So in today’s experimenation I thought of the theme: morning feelings. I created a bed from a rostra a few sheets. The place where head lays was colorful to recreate the dreams and the bottom was blank as to denote the routine of life.

Listening to some music I created a small piece that used lots of repitition (look at Pina Bausch)

  • lying down
  • sitting up
  • back to lying down
  • sitting up
  • turning to put my feet on the floor
  • back to lying down
  • sitting up
  • turning to put my feet on the floor
  • standing up
  • back to lying down
  • sitting up
  • turning to put my feet on the floor
  • standing up
  • making the bed ect.

As I was in my own space it was hard to focus on what I am doing. I think i will have to recreate the environment of the space that my character’s in and create a boubble around me sonoone else in the room distract me, like I do it when i am home alone.

So for my next step I will find out more about Pina Bausch repetition technique and I will experiment at home with getting up, putting my make up on or having a shower and then in the rehearsal space I will make my movement bigger to denote that particular moment in time.
