My idea for this piece was to use these oranges in a familiar but uncomfortable way. My concept evolved from just peeling them, to peeling then throwing them off the table, to finally peeling and smashing them. I didn't rehearse this piece, so I adapted to what was happening as I performed it. As I began to peel the first orange it tore in half. I decided to roll with that and began half peeling, half tearing the oranges apart and squeezing them onto the table. My hands got wet and slippery from the juices as the performance went on, which made it progressively harder. I knew that I wanted a serious, detached demeanor. I didn't want my face to pull focus away from the actions I was performing. Through theatre and especially puppetry I have learned how to control my body and facial expression, which was very useful in this performance. Overall I am pleased with this performance. I think the audience got what I wanted them to: pleasure and discomfort.
