Performance Arnolfini Bristol – Performance Writing Weekend – ELMCIP Seminar.

Igor Stromajer in Hamburg Annie Abrahams in Bristol united in a webperformance interface are the marionettes put into (e)motion via text written by the public at Arnolfini’s, using their labtops and smartphones. Two speakers are reading this text aloud in front of the public.

Marionettes / Scripting Reality / On Manipulation / Txt Theater / Public Collaboration Dynamics

As much an exercice in collectif writing as a performance.
Texts written by the audience:

Text for Annie :
peak
close your maouth
say hello
smile at us all
touch your chin like you’re thinking profoundly
touch your heart like you mean it
try to intimidate the audience
Please sing:Row, row, row your boat,Gently down the stream.Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,Life is but a dream.
remain imaginative
enough
enough
appreciate our silent applause
LOOK OUT!
Look In!
raise your eyes
Mime sailing
a decadent artist
Mime
sailing
mime drowing silently
turn to the other
look the other way
eat a sandwich
words, words, words
go on
lift that weight

Text for Igor:
d
turn
think about your future
robots should be created free
finish speaking
gesticulate
finish speaking again
use your tongue
put your hat on upside down
Please do a RTD2
pull your eyebrows
describe the room
enough starwars
say a 4 letter word
express a tragedy
exploit the creative opportunities that arise from your wearing a turtle-neck
no light jazz songs
Come back
breath deeply the gathering gloom
look the other way
melt completely
way
electric shock
save some for us
go on
