Here are shots from a performance piece, “Putting words into my mouth”. This performance was for my Time studio class final. In this skit I played a energetic daughter, my friend Aaliyah Freeman , played my overbearing/over protective mother.
In the performance the mother force feeds words into the daughter’s mouth. The daughter then begins to feed herself. The mother satisfied then leaves, the daughter spits them out ending the performance.
The theme is standing up for yourself. The words I were being fed were typed up phrases that I’ve been told the phrases were criticisms dealing with my appearance,career choices, and romantic ties. Even though the performance was light hearted many teens/ young adults face criticism from their families. performance.2012.
