Clapping Piece

Creative Strategies final solo work
Brookes University – Black Box studio
February 2010

For this performance I sat before the audience with a soft lighting rig on me and partially on them, also seated. Upon standing up I started clapping rapidly and gradually slowed it minute by minute until each clap became uncomfortably far apart. After 8 minutes I stopped with the last gap between claps lasting approximately one minute.

Mike and I worked together to trap the audience in a circle of leaves formed by moving them around with our feet.  This was a good education in communication and was a lot of fun, despite the wet feet.
