Final day – mash up

4 Oct

One of my favourite tools from the devising box flourished today: a simple exercise that creates a melting pot of movement and images in a long form unruly physical improvisation prompted by index cards picked at random from a table. Well placed, at best this always seems to explode a whole physical language of a piece, at worst throws up many striking images you’ve not seen before and could never engineer. It worked well enough once it got going, and certainly the use of chairs sprang from nowhere as having real potential in this new space. Other moments included pall-bearing, military set-pieces, the miracle calculator and baseball scenes. Was very glad to have the video camera running, and looking forward to drawing up some of those phrases and moments that really caught the attention.
