Final Preparations

In our final run up to the piece we did a quick run through (with outside advice from one Mr Denard – thanks alot kid!

Me and Zoe rehearsed our argument, forgot words, shouted a lot etc….
We tried to create a real sense of universal anger between the sexes whilst still maintaining an amount of underlying affection this came from me trying to joke with her and accidental smiles between the two parties.....Hoever we tried to conveyed real anger and aggression that got worse and worse. In our rehearsals we tried to make the transitions between points as smooth and natural as possible so it seemed like a real argument whilst still getting in all of our complaints. By the end our points were really quite nasty and we felt we had done well in that we would easily convey tensions between the two sexes

The booths were a constantly changing element.
I felt they were necessary as we had to have as many different elements and mediums in the piece to give the spectator a total sensory experience and keep them engaged constantly. Though they went from walk in booths with headphones > walk in booths with directional speakers > mere decoration with sound coming out to intrigue they ended up as the base for the protagonist (i stood in my booth at the start, zoe in hers).....The work Ian and Owen and others had done to dress them up meant they perfectly framed us and created an effective picture for when the spectators entered and perfectly encapsulated the main focus of the piece. We had sound coming out from them which would draw audience around the space - though this final thing was only decided at the last minute!

We had a problem with the audience moving too far into the performance space (into the video area)
We changed the chorus position to block this off and it also made them the main focus of the whole performance as they were in a traditional front focus place (ie in front of the eyes of the spectator rather than in and around like the collage and me and zoe)

Owen pointed out the movement of the two tableaus behind the screens was at different speeds
We decided that both should move in a more slow, stylised way to keep with the dramatic, darker, eerie nature of the installation and so this was just a matter of conference between Rhys (representing male brutality) and Sophie (representing female evil)
