UC Davis Creation Residency 2010

1/11/10 First Rehearsal. 6pmU-Club

Present – Me, David, Maria, Jörg Claire and Kaino.  Dani (Dave's PA)
Everyone has arrived, Thankfully.  I am relieved.  Still a bit ofrearranging this week on the housing front.
Kaino brings home made fruitcake, donuts and Tangerines from her neighbors tree.

We open therehearsal with a 3 minute check-in go-round.  Feels a bit clunky at first, but actually nice once people get into it.  David admits to feeling a bit freaked out by the whole context of our symmetry installation at Keith’s Too Much Event last night.

Then a lot of logistical talk.  Dates and such.

We decide that each rehearsal will begin with45 minutes of individual warm-up.  Everyone will be ready for group movement activity starting at 6pm.

We take a break and Kaino takes photos of everyone.

I propose a 30 minute observation score. In partners each person is observed for 30 minutes and then doer and observer report to each other.

With Maria watching, JörgChanges clothes cries, and then takes off his clothes and turns upside down with his hair flying up off his head.

With David watching, Claire is very minimal and sits on a yoga mat and sort of stretches. gets up to put on her socks.rubs her knee

At 23 minutes Jörg gets up and leaves the room.

Other Direction>>

While Jörg watches Maria lays on mats a long time, moves against wall, does fire breath.

While Claire watches David Lies down, Walks to white board.  Moves onto block. Moves from Bech to stool to bench.  (Changing levels is beautiful. 

People watching people is beautiful.  How can we provoke the audience to watch each other?

Maria writes on Chalk Board the lyrics to “The man I love” and pulls down her pants.

Watching each other watching is beautiful.  (David watches Maria)

Maria removes words from the song.

David moves on to top of table and reads over my shoulder.

(david at edge of table is scary)  (table dance for later)

Maria is just fucking beautiful.  she quotes Café Müller.

David watches Dani?

I love David’s  T-Shirt “Wasted”

(Shirtology quotes?)

End in10 minute Free Write

Here is mine.  I am in love with these guys already.  Oh my god, that was beautiful..  I could invite people to watch that tomorrow.  The incredible simplicity of each of their presence was just stunning.  I may be just in a fucked up kind of sentimental mood, butthat was really exquisite. I need to do really nothing at all.

Jörg’s tears,  Claire’s eyes as she watched David, David’s face and the simplicity of his moving up and down between levels and just sitting on the table.  I must be losing my mind for sure, but actually no one but me really needs to like this piece.  I don’t have to sell any tickets.  There will be no real reviews.  I can explain away a weird moment of process to any presenters that happen to come through.

I loved that.

I wonder how my viewing as an outside outsider affected the proceedings?  I imagine so many different possibilities about this set up.  watching each other then everybody watching one person, then choosing an audience member to watch.  Copy?  Turn the theater inside out really.  (Fuck William Forsythe.)

I want Josh to make the Mondavi look like the U-Club. I want the audience to have the choice to follow people outside and walk into the space. David watching from the seats was good.  Jörg outside the windows. David with Maria’s hat on. 

I am really pleased.   I also feel a little sad.  It had a kind of sadness to it that I liked.

that seems like about enough to say here.  Quotes from Jerome Bel and Pina Bausch.

1/12/10 Tuesday – U-Club

5-6 Personal Warm-up

6-7 Sensing Score working through Proprioception, kinesthesic filters to be in movement and focusing on underlying sensations in the body that are not normally conscious.

 Then working through Hearing, Smell, and Vision as filters for shaping movement choices.

7-8 Break for Safety Training and Volunteer Form filling in.

8-8-30 Worked in Contact pairs rotating through each possible pairing with one observer at all times (Idanced with)

8-30- 9-15Worked on a making exercise.  Jörg/David and Claire/Maria.

Notes on Each

Jörg/David Duet

Not touching, Close proximity.  Working Spaces in between. Various Modes include David sliding under Jörgon all fours, Jörg jumping with David’s hands in between feet.  Jörgs behind David and whole game of hands moving through and around. Spooning image at end.  David pushes into handstand to avoid hand between legs.  David Jumping on hands and Jörg trying to emulate.  What is the meeting/meaning here?

Claire/Maria Duet

Approach facing each other. Attach heads. Arm gestures.?? find hoodie. Create Arm puppet with hoody (project) Re move hoodie Claire reverses and they move through space.

9-15 1015 Table Section

Reviewed material from Berlin.  Sitting around table passing claps then sounds, then layering a phase of counting with different tones.  We then moved into passing the 5 tones around the table in a star, which made the melody 1-3-5-2-4. Then layered numbers 1-4 over that then a four word phrase.  Brain Fuck but really fun.

ended with an improv trying to tell an improvised story around the table while maintaining the tone pass path.


5-6 Personal warmup

6-7 Jörg leads

Claire -Fun house Mirrors

Jörg – Opera Singing

Maria – Walk Across, Ask questions: What is your favorite animal? Favorite Tree?  Tell me something about being in love? Tell me something about growing old?

David- Chair circle - Pushups

715-830 talking/Moving - Sound into Contact

vocal mirroring into 5 way mirror in levels on one plane and then 5 way mirror score around the table.  Then we did say what you do Sound what you do into duets.

J/C , M/DNice Duets

8- 9 Half hour Watchings into Duet Makings

I gave the direction to not disallow direct engagements of the observer.


jörg plays trumpet while observing.  Claire sits eats and watches David as Jörg observes.   Claire moves on stage and reads her book.  “Bodies”I like this image.

J. adjusts his view point, gets very far away and then very close.


Maria watches first round. David goes for a wheel chair dance then moves over to table for a bit of a table dance and then interesting stuff climbing on an upside down chair.  Ends lying on the ground stretched out.

d/Mwings and heels,  “ tu me fai girar” karaoke in the kitchen.

c/J Trumpet in the courtyard and a construction project back in the space with a found hat rack.  J reads from ”Bodies.”  Maria enters with wig and brick on head as he reads.  too perfect J into closet.

J keeps reading as Claire plays piano.  Stuff about kids and photoshop loss of visual history.

Maria enters again with brick on head.  and Best of Life Magazine book

“knees are no longer to be taken for granted.”

J. French accent good.

books yes

 What if we had a chorus of watchers?  This last twenty minutes became really something.

1/20/10 Rehearsal at U-Club

5-6 warm-up

6-8 Guillermo exercises


Triptych image exercise

Word Jam – This performance is/not

This performance is:




A sextet

Trees and squirrels


A movie


Challenging stereotypes

In gravitation

An open door

Free space

Imagining new bodies

Turning itself over

Fluid/ fluids

Looking for cows (in the footnotes)

This performance is not:


Knowing what it is yet




A competition


A bike race

Politically correct

America is:



Mixed up

Not what I thought it was



Like being in a movie

Wrapped in a flag


Drinking coffee

Cup holders

Sugar induced enthusiasm


America is not:

Aware of wine

Aware of lying

Aware of subtlety

Appreciative of sarcasm


Only black

Only white

Only red


My body is:




Slower than it was


Not as bouncy as it was

Stronger than it was


My body is not






Tall enough

Young enough



Thin enough


Only man

Separate from me

The images I remember I have created in the last days:

Climbing on a lion

Dancing with a mannequin

Being lion

Barefoot space man



Maria roller-skating in a blonde wig

Pretending to wear glasses



Jorg in a white wig and a blue suit

Clare with a cigarette

Clare in Maria in blue sequins dancing to disco

I do what I do because if I didn’t:

I’d still be postman

I would be married

I would still be living in Kilmarnock

I would have four children

I would be in jail

Somebody else would

I would have developed cancer because of the proximity of my mother

I'd be found face down in a river

I wake up every day and fight against my inner demons, enigmatic insects:

Fear of women

Hatred of men

The world

The world as I see it

Fear of being mediocre


The unknown


Longing for a belief


If I could do anything I want with this performance I would:

Make people feel more alive in their own bodies

Make people question their own perceptions

Offer my body to any one who wants to take it

Eat myself

Ride 20miles on a bicycle with the entire audience following me

Change identity 20 times

De Brief –

Sort of almost meltdown at Bistro Bar,  Claire is feeling freaked about improvising publicly,  Freaked about improvising in general.  David wants to know what we are doing? 

Guillermo is encouraging in a way – Saying” you are not really directing, it’s great.”  But this feels a bit weird, especially coming from him.  Thank God for Jörg who is mostly ready to go for anything and willing even to push into weirder less formed territory than anyone.

1/22/10 Rehearsal U club 12-6pm

12-1 Warmup

1-230 Jess Group motion


Zambrano architecture

Dance “inside your body”

Make a move

230 – 345 Guillermo  

Repeat Call and Response exercise.

Performance is:

Showing your stuff
Place for failure
Spider in my bed
A form of control
My job


Performance is not:

Like being a postman
A marriage counselor

My community is:

My collection of books
The people who ride my bus
Non existent
On film
In my head
In my body

My community is not:

Easily described
One thing
Just people
Imaginary animals and friends

I am feminine when:

When I listen
When I talk
When I am only with men
In bed with my lover
When I slide
I’m in my head
I feel peer pressure
I talk too loud
I try to be standing
I interrupt
When I'm with the rest of the boys

If I could transform the world with my imagination there would be:

No cats
No white light
No computer
No cell phones
Enough food for everyone
Champagne would be free
Wouldn’t be cops, teachers
More singing
More hugging
No memory of Freud
Public transit everywhere
Processed foods
Easier to make friends
No judgment
Less violence
No stairs

Tryptichs, more visual, more meaningful, “Some aspect of yourself.

Improv Jam

Make a score for yourself and write it down without telling anyone else what it is.  Can include activities that require others, but you’re not allowed to tell before hand

Text -tell the Moral of the Story.  What does it all mean,  What do you want it (the performance) to do?

Post run-through thoughts.

This was a good exercise,  we start to have a pool of returning images that re-inform each other in different ways as they return.  Guillermo’s work has definitely bumped up the level on visuality and symbolic content. at least for me and I think for the others as well.

Need to try

Everyone Starts Normally dressed, move toward fantasy images

Everyone make your best dance solo

Everyone make cool moves to create group dance.

Everyone make an image of your death.???

1/28/10 Rehearsal at U-Club

7-10 Improv Jam

Quick Notes from 1/28/10

3 hour improv -  feel incredibly sad. 

How do we find joy?  I am not afraid to make a sad piece.  A piece about loss and longing.  about letting go.  About what feels difficult or even impossible.

But it’s a challenge.

Can’t tell where the personal is totally overshadowing the art.  How much do I let in.

I liked our diagonal line to begin.
Gazing at the mannequin then Claire took it away.

put half a mannequin back in her place.

liked the books getting in there already.

Book dance??

How do we have an outside eye?  How can I be an outside eye?  Music?  need something up or we are going to kill them, and ourselves.

Death is a bit strong heredon’t need the piece to die for us

Riding is hard in shoes.  didn’t do the song and I feel like it loses the clarity of the image. image is clearer with,  has a point of view.

Costume installation?  was nice to do.

Jörg/Maria/ David trio was nice with nudity.

Feel like dyin.

 Jess torture felt strong.

Rowing Gurney into cooler was nice, with an audience I would have stayed longer.

got stuck in catatonia with Maria on Gurney 2nd time.

We are dark.

Multiple ipod’s were nice actually

Sad there is no live music.

Jörg playing with recording was nice.
