Performance 2 was really a fun piece for me to preform, as I was not as nervous as the first one nor was it as serious. Neither Zara or I had much time to obsess over this performance and so our decisions were made fast and without overthinking it to much. Using Sandy's advice and looking at the fluxes workbook helped a great deal. After looking over a few options we settled on Davi Det Hompson score "Lessons" which were simple and to the point :
"Arrange nine crackers on a table.Ask someone to choose the most beautiful cracker from the grouping. Smash the remaining crackers with your fist"
It was short simple, more so then what I was trying to come up with. Zara decided to add the Austin powers music to give it a comical vibe instead of the seriousness that colored our last performance.
I felt the actual performance went great and discovered it was almost an endurance piece as well, when I realized half way through that we had to keep hitting our fist into cracker dust on a hard table. Overall I felt it was a successful performance that I enjoyed.
Here is our score and a few pictures!
Dress in all black
Two spot lights at the long ends of the table
- Have a table with crackers on it
- Have the audience sit around the in a circle approx 3 feet from the table
- The show starts when the Austin power music starts
- Set up nine crackers on a table
- Have Female performer 1 close her eyes and spin nine times with her finger pointed out
- Female performer 2 will retrieve the audience member from the crowd that female 1 points to
- Ask the chosen audience member to pick the best looking cracker
- Have the audience member sit down with the cracker
- Divide the remaining crackers between the two performers
- Each performer must smash their four crackers one at a time with their first
If the music stops before remaining crackers are done being smashed stop immediately the show is over.
If all the crackers are smashed before the show is over start smashing the crackers all over again until the music stops and the show is over
