Lisi Stoessel and Francisco Benavides were the core deviser-performers on this 8-hour durational piece. Because of its length, we could not rehearse the piece all the way through, and so much of our time as a team was spent in figuring out smaller moments, figuring out how the performers and we as the production team would cue each other and help the piece move along, and creating a "tome" that determined the order of events. My role was largely to help Lisi and Francisco precisely define who the characters were in voice, text, movement, and intention, so that in the performance, they would not feel lost even when improvising, as well as helping to shape the whole piece.
