No one knows what The Something is, completely. It only exists as an accumulation of multiple perspectives based on multiple participants. We as facilitators merely create a platform for this piece by offering musical instruments, noise making objects, closed circuit video recorders and projectors, costume elements, various wall coverings, modular objects and electronics equipment. Multiple entry points create multiple types of participation. We have found that this is a successful invitation to something unique each time- something beyond what any of us could imagine.
For my part, I brought in my character Cortezuma, and costumes and props. I found the soundscapes to be natural backdrops for movement, which becomes dance, and costume which becomes character. All this is just offered to whomever happens in. At every event, we have rare moments where everyone involved can feel that something is happening. It begins to be what I call proto-performance.
