Dear Gillien, Roxane and Lou: There are six episodes. 3 episodes take place in the video room and 3 in the audio room as follows: Even though I give you explicit directions below, feel free to walk in and out of your cameras - from one to another - at will. Feel free to change costume or character between them, feel free to quote from another script you know OR TO IMPROVISE at any time. Also, if you like it better, feel free to follow the directions explicitly. Cycle one starts before Gillien gets there. so Im saving Spoon River footage for the second one. Dont worry about filling the time or timing... Altho trying to stretch is out is good in cuseeme since the packets of electrons have to travel. A. 3:15 pm Video Cycle One begins Monologues with Giraffic Park video (windup toys) behind actors. Roxanne is in Camera 1 - Lou is in Camera 2 Roxane inhales and and then does - Russian Sonya Followed by relaxed Pause, slight movements, fidgeting in slow motion Lou in camera 2 does - Archibald Higby Followed Relaxed Pause slow motion (soft movements) Roxane and Lou switch windows (Roxane to Camera 2 and Lou goes to Camera 1) Do monlogues simultaneously, looking into camera as if you are looking at each other.
