Brief post on CABD’s “Black Girl Linguistic Play.” We’re interested in the basic question: what does the work do? In just a few sentences, present both an observation (!) and a question (?) about what the performance does.Your observations and questions about what performance does will begin to connect our experiences engaging with performance and engaging with abstract painting.
!: I like how they utilise the chalk on the ground, and how it connects to the grand mural in the background. They later explained that using chalk to draw murals means to erase the childhood memories, and that was a truly interesting point.
?: I have a question for their choice of music. During the performance, I found that many times, the rhythm of their movement dose not match the rhythm of the music. So I’m curious about if that’s intentional or not.
