Production Details / Press Releases
“the way to do it” is a solo performance part of a bigger research that explores ways to highlight the mechanisms of theater. My body is the meeting point between a repetitive score of five actions and objects found in the performance room such as tape, chairs, curtains, rope, entrance door. The cyclical structure enhances different levels of abstraction, testing my influence on some of the elements that are shaping the performative environment.
The score of “the way to do it” as the following:
1 – The tape
2 – The curtain slide
3 – The chairs
4 – Tracing the space
5 – The spectator
