Napkin notes

trading energy, refusing victimization (especially as a female)
reclamation
re-opening stab wound YOURSELF
you are not as strong as me
sodomy woman

character cliches to act within and without fluidly

  • sexualized
  • intellectual/poetry reader (lol)
  • raged
  • bar
  • punks
    /community through destruction
    fun/ fright
    PLAY

social triggers that don't make sense
fluidity between performance and "real"/"authentic" interactions with people present

blow jobs
possibly use subtle artifice – candyglass, a blood capsule in a mouth/a slap
a happy and aggressive fight between friends

possibilities of using sound

  • cricket noises
  • ocean noises
    something background and subtle but at odds with the space

PERFORMANCE GOAL(?) – MAKE PEOPLE LEAVE
