Sleep

 

Sleep

A scene is played in front of an audience without sound or music. It involves two performers in various states of sleeping. The performers follow a very formal, dignified or grand way of doing something in which all the appropriate ceremonies are observed. When the scene is over, the performers start the scene again, in exactly the same way, this time with music. And again and again…the scene stays the same only the music changes.
No restrictions or rules are made to what kind of music should be written/performed. The only restriction was/is that of a time, they have to stick to the 9 min length.
