I took the following notes after working with Gretchen Cohenour for several weeks in the development of her solo:

 

 

 

placing, precision, journey of forever

sniper will shoot you if you don’t do this task

water shortage- this is all the water for the community, for the week.  but you’re so thirsty

 

last cup- so thirsty.

“I’m sorry” begins in lyrics

switch channel

radio station tuning/turning to Kudzu

audience all around you

audience of ghosts

 

dance dissolves into realization of horror

fluids

 

“I’m sorry” returns to lyrics

so tired, down to knees looking up, with weight in hands

 

as music begins to pick up,

into banshee- face

 

resolves, as though regarding a student with frustration/compassion

 

release to ground
