.After much discussion about yesterday's post, today two young performers from The Theatre of the Actors of Looking respond with a series of tableaux vivant, a play : "In reality, ...".
Staged upon a cube, he plays Ideal Man, she Ideal Woman. They each seek Ideal Other. In addition, each carries an Instrument of the Passion, on this occasion an accordion telescope. Allegorically, this represents the possibility of other sight. Physically, it can be long or short or any length between.
They perform the permutations. By turns, they display to each other and they look at each other. So too with their Instruments, they show and they regard.
In the scene below, Ideal Woman gazes downward though her Instrument - she turns it to enlarge - at the broad end of the fully extended, vertically displayed Instrument of Ideal Man.
