1st open rehearsal: Friday 08.09
Some people from around Moosach came to META Theater on Friday evening. We asked some questions such as the following:
What do prostheses evoke in you? Why? What do prostheses remind you of? Comments we got:
- They look like pincers, bats
- It is not inviting
- They can look evil, they are not beautiful
- Sharpness is threatening
- Looks like a skeleton, the carcass of a dead animal
- They look very different depending on where the person place them
- Why are they not covered?
- They look like they are looking for something
- They look like antennae or organs of perception
- Why do they all look the same?
- Beauty is in the movement
- Raw, naked.
