Tableau Vivant: A Performer’s Perspective
The Sklylight One Hanson performances of photographer Sarah Small’s 120-person Tableau Vivant of The Delirium Constructions are upon us.
If you haven’t done so yet, I highly recommend reading mezzo-soprano Abigail Wright’s blog Skydiving for Pearls, in which she details her experiences as singer and nude model in Tableau Vivant.
For those attending one of the performances (May 23, 7 p.m. and May 24, 8 p.m.), be on the lookout for your expectations prior to the Tableau, and how those expectations may have changed, been met, shattered, etc. It strikes me that this aspect of the audience experience will be crucial–I’ll definitely be aware of it personally. See you there.
