I gave the ensemble an aerial map of downtown Fayetteville and told them to go find the place I marked on their map. After locating the place and coming back, I gave them a poem and asked them to make me a map to the place using the poem.
The video is dramaturgy for us as we explore the possibilities of the terrain for our traveling performance, "Alley 38". We used the poem by "Cloud and Grid" by Carolyn Guinzio. She lives in Fayetteville, and is my new favorite poet! The poem is deconstructed by our process and the original context lost, so please enjoy the poem here-
