Keeping Quiet - Visual Comedy in the Age of Sound
Continuing to work on the techniques I had set out to learn.
Today I attempted the solo without the text or without any sound at all. I also attempted saying the text but without sound, so only the movement of my lips making the sound.
Doing this enabled me to really practice the movement tasks I had been doing before and focus solely on the specifics of the movement vocabulary I had built up so far. Also, I realised that it is not physical comedy at all. A lot of physical comedy blurs lines with contemporary dance technique and they are very similar to practice, perform and to watch.
