Verse texture (IFFR 1999)

Minimal miniature about a rehearsal of a play text by an actress and a directing actor. The actress is amazing.

An actress and an actor are rehearsing parts of the play Three Travellers Watch Sunrise by Wallace Stevens (1879-1955). The dialogues of the three travellers (Chinese) and the girl (Anna) are spoken by the actress as a monologue. The actor listens and sometimes gives the actress directions.
