The theatre ABM is in the midst of devising a performance piece to show on Thursday. We’ve been exploring the themes of the Genesis story using movement scores, tableaux, and writing exercises.
For some participants, it’s their first experience doing theatre, so we’ve also been doing a lot of ensemble work and theatre skill building.
With the collaboration of many members of the ensemble, we’re closing in on the final draft of our script, and are looking forward to our two rehearsals next week to get ready to show the rest of BIMA what we’ve been working on.
The script is comprised of the participant’s writing, as well as scenes and movement sequences that the participants created in class. Below are photographs of three different tableaux created by participants to evoke the themes that we are exploring in this piece.
