this friday call your mom performed in the basement of emma's house for the helicon exhibition. it was cool to take on new challenges in the realms of installation, live performance, and sight-specific adaptation. I think these practices will serve us well when it comes time to move our house show into the gallery space. I learned a lot during this performance, though I wouldn't call it one of my favorites. We wrote the whine/milk poem in charcoal on the basement wall. We arranged an installation in front of our projected video. The installation consisted of the costumes we wore in the video, a semi circle of wine in milk cups and milk in whine cups, and a semi circle of christmas lights. We performed a structured improvisation, which drew from the sounds and phrases in the video. It taught me a lot about the cym style. It was cool to explore the similarities and differences between this performance and THIS CLOSE, the official last live performance we did for an audience. This performance was similar to Yelling/silence in THIS CLOSE because of it's loose format, its repetition, and its build.
