Title: shaving cream
Instructions: put shaving cream on window. Draw shapes
Why? When I was in elementary school, shaving cream on school desks was a class favorite. The concept of using the door as canvas for shaving cream seemed pretty sweet
Rehearsal: got the shaving cream at the rite aid on Adams. Hoped one can to be enough
Performance Write Up: Initially I wanted to focus on geometric shapes, but the tactile experience of playing with shaving cream hijacked the performance mentality, driving it toward the land of the visceral.

Instructions: Sing to and about the penis pinecone sculpture
Why? Michelle and Scooter came the night before to work on this phallic pinecone sculpture made of hot glue and pinecones. We made it for the soul challenge elements of the decadence party I was going to throw at my house that night.
Rehearsal Notes: I felt slightly under the weather that day, worried about the party happening. I was overwhelmed because I had yet to make preparations for the event performance wise and food wise. I am not sure what my intention was, but likely it was a prayer/blessing to the pinecone phallus in free vocal form.
Performance Write Up: I think some people came to this. I am writing about it March 31st. I remember feeling slightly awkward about the phallic pinecone arrangement. Wondering if anyone knew what it was. It’s still a pretty ambiguous shape. I remember not feeling sure about what exactly I was doing.

Title: post decadence
Instructions: Vince tells the story of the decadence party. Lexi responds with vocal sounds embodying the essence of statements made by Vince.
Why? Had a party the night before called Decadence where those in attendance performed pieces inspired by decadence.
Rehearsal: Pretty much conceptualized this on the drive over, plugged in audio set up and went for it.
Performance Write Up: I was so tired, as can be seen.
