These brief excerpts of this 30min piece are taken from about 10minutes and 25minutes in. It was filmed in January 2009.
In Count One a playful accumulative structure organises moments of exchange and interaction between four performers. Graduating from everyday gestures to actions of display, the repetition of these episodes invites audiences to become familiar with and recognise variations in the evolving material and its possible translations. The episodes progress to embrace elements of theatrical spectacle, inviting an array of relationships and meanings to come in and out of effect -- a lively evolutionary journey from handshake to costume and lights.
