Communal Juicing is a scripted performance with live cold press juicing involving 4 performers, a cold press masticating juicer, a cameraman and a sound recordist. At certain points there will be a “break for juicing”, when the performers and audience juice organic vegetables and fruit and then start a different section of the performance with freshly pressed juices to drink. The scripted sections will be interrupted by the filming of the performance – for re-shoots, rehearsals and re-readings. The Director will occasionally step in and take the part of “Matt” or the Actress to shoot a scene.
There will be one or two scheduled moments for a larger audience to assemble – formed around the “breaks for juicing”, where the audience take part in juicing, then take part in a filmed, scripted section. When the public moments finish, the audience are welcome to stay while the performance and filming of the performance continues.
