Performance One...Gen Ben and Lily....Spitters are Quitters

Score for Performance Three...Gen and Ben....Sploosh


Heavy breathing throughout
Black sheet in the middle of the room and central light

Performers wear all black, audience enters room and they begin to breathe heavily, all lights are off
once audience is seated lights are turned on by someone else
Both performers make their way to the black sheet in the middle
make eye contact for a second
then strip down to underwear
the female lies down
the male starts blowing up condoms and filling them with whip cream
hands to female to tie
she places them aside
both make sporadic moaning noises throughout
once the can of whip cream is gone, the bottle is thrown aside
a knife is pulled out and the blown up condoms are popped over the female
ends when all condoms are popped
female leaves stage

Performance Four....Gen Ben and Lily....How Animals Eat Their Food

All Performers maintain silence throughout
Gen and Ben in all black, Lily wearing big coat (kind of like a hostess)
Audience enters....plucky music is playing
Lily is the server, and writes the animal name on the board (there is a list of 10 or so)
Lily sets the table after everyone is sitting
One bowl for Gen and one for Ben
Ben goes away from the set table
Gen sits there eating her salad
Ben approaches the table using mannerisms of the animal indicated along with noises as well
Table is reset
Table cloth replaced, bowls replaced
The list is completed
The music stops
All performers bow

Moderately dark room

Person 1 lays down on the table
Person 2 and Person 3 carry out their own personal objects
     Light source on
  Mouth motion beings
Every 5-10 seconds change position
Changes in velocity and tempo

As paste dissolves refill as needed
    Still in silence, listen close
Spit and drip onto Person 1  as necessary
  Person 1 is silent

Use the entire roll of tooth paste
Both grabs the mouthwash gargles and spits on Person 1

Person 1 turns head towards audience and opens mouth
     returns from stoic state and water comes out

Person 2 turns off light source

Response to Performance One

Going into this first project, I didn't know what to expect. The concept of intermedia was so different than anything I had ever done, so I was really unsure of how things would pan out. We started with the idea of brushing our teeth, going in the same directions, at the same speed, gradually increasing velocity. But we wanted more. One of us suggested we use a sink....but that would be too literal, so we turned to Ben, Ben became our willing sink. So we had a set up. Lily and I would brush our teeth, and we would spit everything out on to Ben. But we wanted to go even further still. So we came to the conclusion that we were going to use an entire tube of toothpaste during a performance. It was gonna be messy, and we weren't sure how well we'd be able to keep our composure, but we managed somehow! Of course until Lily started making weird gurgling noises....then all three of us lost it. Honestly that was the most fun I've ever had performing anything ever. I love this! For our next performance of this piece, we want Ben in all black, maybe the two of us in white, and we want more of a mess. So we're going to have cups of water to rinse with and by the end of the performance, Ben will be drenched...and next time, it won't just be his shirt....hell he might not even wear a shirt. We shall see. Stay tuned!
