Session 17326: Research Assistants Elyse Desmond and Derek DiMartino
I was really excited to have these two amazing people with me during the process. And my friend Emma makes a cameo through her phrase "This is a brooch." For me a brooch is an ornament that we adorn ourselves with. I wanted to emulate that by picking random parts of their bodies that they may find satisfying that they embellish it on their daily lives.
I think it is funny that Elyse brought in the running fingers because i had used it in Rehearsal: Empty Chair, and she didn't know. Derek added his own embellishments by adding things to the movement i created, and almost always I said "yes, figure out what that was because it is in it." I wanted their own ornaments to be there.
I didn't want a lot of touching because I didn't want it to be a romantic relationship. At one point I'll figure out how to disconnect the two but that was not today.
