Year: 2016 Two performers, black tape, pencil, paper.
Inspired by the research of Adam D. Galinsky, Prime is a series of small performances and that investigate the influence of social priming. Two performers walk along a line. At either end of this line they answer a simple question: Describe a time when you had control over someone.
Describe a time when someone had control over you? The performers then proceed to walk back and forth between the two questions. With each pass they must negotiate how to cross over each other without stepping off the line.
