We did some experimental run throughs on site. We tried performing in parallel, and performing in turn and then pausing whilst the other one does some. The parallel performance works much better, the serial one is a bit pedestrian and dull.
I like the way modern woman is oblivious to the earth despite her heels getting (literally) stuck in it. Neo woman is much more engaged with her surroundings.
We talked about how to create an identity for the two roles through the use of object (bowl for neo, mirror or phone for modern) and gesture (slower, more precise and grounded for neo and frenetic, birdlike for modern).
And we worked out ways to engage with the audience by using humour and exchanging objects with them.
