Work for Pay

September 12, 2009

work for pay 1

Tomorrow I will be performing in a piece about being unemployed.  For me, unemployment this year hasn’t been unemployment as much as “under-employment.”  Not enough work.  Good news is that Lydia Bell, the artist behind the project, is paying her performers.  How bout that?

I am used to being paid at least something in the world of acting, but this collaborative, devised stuff can be tough.

The piece is a pretty simple movement/sound score, that moves in cycles. I think it’s thoughtful and provocative and I’m curious to see how it works in the outdoors at Perform Williamsburg tomorrow.
