LIVE ARTS FOR THE EVERYDAY – APPLICABLE THOUGHT #25 – Solo

Andrew Morrish is a renowned improviser devoted to solo work. He uses movement, voice and speech to compose performances in real time. He prefers performing solo because “with solo we don’t have the complication of whose art it is”. When one performs a solo, there is nobody else on stage and one bears greater responsibility for whatever happens or doesn’t happen. By dedicating enough time to doing things alone in our life we can get a clearer view of what things that appear on our stage are our own making. When we are in contact with the rest of the world a lot more elements come into play and it can be more difficult to discern.
