AP for Performance

I have finally discovered what I have to do to make my performance interesting for me and the audience. I will use five physical theatres/ companies/ practitioners to create my piece where in each 2mins the audience are going to see those five different physical theatres/ companies/ practitioners. I want to rehearse different routines to give the spectators the feeling of a daily routine of getting out of bed.


2mis for each stage

stage 1 sleeping in bed (inspiration DV8 – Strange Fish)

stage 2 getting up (Joan Littlewood?)

stage 3 not wanting to get up (inspiration Steve Paxton – Material for the Spine)

stage 4 finally getting up (?)

stage 5 dressing up (inspiration Pina Bausch – Luna de Margarita)


The choreographies are going to have Slavic music at the background as I want to find my own identity within this performance as well as my own native language. I am currently free writing short monologues in Polish to match the mood when I get up from the bed.

What next?

  • Start creating the movement
  • Find music
  • Finish your monologues
