Embody the Boundary - 1

Embody the Boundary - 2

Person stages anti-model. One person closely observes the protagonist, sensing with his or her body the 'boundaries' that keep her from acting. Another observes the antagonist, sensing the boundaries that keep him protected. When the scene is over, each of the protagonist's observers works with 3 more spect-actors (including the original protagonist) to mold the boundary, first as a tableaux and then dynamized. The antagonist's observer does the same. Then the two groups meet each other. The group representing the boundary-of-the-protagonist has the opportunity to revise their "dance," or boundary action, several times in the attempt to move, or make more flexible, the antagonist's boundary in some way.
