FALLING & LOVING

Two titans of the avant-garde—director Anne Bogart and choreographer Elizabeth Streb—join forces with the playwright Charles Mee in an original production at The Alexander Kasser theater. Actors and dancers slam the stage to tell intimate tales while being slimed by a merciless Guck Machine and dodging life threatening projectiles. Artists, ideas, and objects collide in this radical lovefest.

Hi. Hello.

Would you like a coffee?

Thank you.

What brings you here?

I'm just passing through.

Well, isn't everyone?

Whose woods are these? I don't know.

So I guess you could say we're lost in the woods together.

I guess you could.

I've never been lost in the woods.

Neither have I.

I'm glad I'm not alone. So am I.

I like nature, but I'm a little bit afraid of it.

Well, sure.

Of the dark parts especially.

I'd like nature better if it were better lit.

I think everyone is basically, you know, afraid of the dark.

Even amoebas.

I mean, you take any life form out of the light,

and they begin to feel some anxiety.

I do. I do.

Light basically is how you orient yourself,

and a person without a sense of orientation,

I mean, if you don't know where you are --

O-Or where you're going --

And about where you are

on the line or the place where you are --

And the destination where you're going --

A person begins to freak out.

I think that's why in jazz,

they always play the melody at the top.

And then once you know the tune, you think, right, let them riff.

Because I know where I am, and I know that in the end,

they're going to come back to the melody.

You know what I mean?

No, sure.

It's like a love story.

You can just get lost in a love story,

because we know whatever happens along the way,

we might get lost, or we might get confused --

Or it's all on again, off again --

And it goes down some blind alley.

But that's how real life is.

That's how it really is

to be in love.

I think I fell in love with him.

And I mean

I fell in love with him like the first time I saw him.

I just couldn't stop looking at him.

He was a wrestler.

And I don't go to wrestling matches, and I don't like jocks.

But I was there because a friend had taken me, and --

Oh, blah, blah, blah, never mind.

But I was walking to our seats in the bleachers,

and I saw him walking along the sidelines,

and I just couldn't take my eyes off him.

I was like a cartoon joke.

I was looking at him and walking,

and I could have walked straight into a wall.

And I think the reason I fell in love with him

is that he reminded me of a friend from high school

who reminded me of this guy I saw in a movie.

♪♪

Out.

In.

The fact is,

I've never been in love before.

I thought I was,

but --

but I never felt like this.

Things just happen so suddenly sometimes.

Do you believe in love at first sight?

No.

Catch.

[ Chuckles ] Neither do I,

and yet there it is.

I'd just like to kiss you.

Oh. [ Chuckles ]

I think, for me, it took so long

to be able to love another person,

such a long time to grow up,

get rid of all my self-involvement,

like worrying about

whether or not I messed up. Right.

Or I thought I need to postpone gratification.

[ Chuckles ] And so I did!

and I got so good at it,

I forgot how to seize the moment.

You know damn well

you're never going to find the perfect mate,

someone you always agree with or even like.

You should be able to get along

with someone who's in the same ballpark.

[ Scoffing ] A-A human being?

Yeah, another human being.

Because we are lonely people.

We like a little companionship.

Yeah, just a cup of tea with another person.

What's the big deal?

You don't need a lot.

You'd settle for very little.

Very, very little when it comes down to it.

Very little.

And that would feel good.

A little, "Hello. Good morning.

How are you today?"

Yeah. "I'm going to the park."

"Okay, have a nice time. I'll see you there for lunch."

Oh, can I bring you anything?

A sandwich in a bag.

Oh, no problem.

I'll have lunch with you in the park.

We'll have a picnic,

and then afterwards,

I'll tell you some lines of poetry

I remember from when I was a kid at school.

And after that, a nap.

Yeah. Or God knows what all.

And to bed.

You don't even have to touch each other.

You don't have to be Don Juan,

have some perfect technique.

Just a touch.

Simple as that.

An intimate touch.

That's fine. Nice.

So much the better.

That's all. Just a touch

that feels good.

Okay, good night.

That's all.

I'll go for that!

I'd like that.

I'd like that just fine.

I'd call that a happy life.

As happy as it needs to get for me.

Out. Out.

It wouldn't be wrong

[ Laughter ]

You could do that.

When I think about it,

I'd like to have sex with you

in the parking lot behind the Exxon station

near the diner on the Malibu Highway. You know the one.

Near that road up into the canyon.

-That's the one. -That would be pretty public.

I'd like to have the whole world see.

You want me so much, you can't wait.

I'd like to have the whole world see

you're not ashamed of me.

Why would I be ashamed of you?

I feel ashamed myself.

For what reason? Who knows?

Every 15 minutes, I feel ashamed of myself at least once

and humiliated for no reason.

It just comes back to me over and over again.

Do you ever feel that way?

Every 15 minutes, I feel worried.

Do you feel you want to hurt someone?

No.

Do you feel you want to get even?

No. That's good.

Do you feel you want to bite something?

I don't think -- Well, maybe I do feel that.

Do you feel you want to take off all your clothes?

No, I usually don't feel that.

Do you feel you want more money?

Sure. Everybody feels that.

Times have changed!

Since when?

Since, oh, I don't know.

I don't think they have.

Well, of course they have.

Well, of course they have in the sense

the Internet, whatnot.

But otherwise, I don't think times have changed.

I think they have.

Compared to what?

My grandmother. You wouldn't know.

That's true. I wouldn't know. Maybe that's what's changed.

But in Russia, you know, they didn't have love affairs

for years, all during the Communists.

How do you know? There was a study.

[ Laughter ]

They didn't even have sex with their husbands

and wives, not much.

Why not? They didn't feel like it.

Well, are they having sex now?

Now? Well, sure, I suppose they are.

You know things have changed in Russia.

There are people who still want to love each other

and be together

and not just halfway,

not just keeping one foot out on the riverbank,

ready to say at any moment, "Okay, forget it.

I guess we grew apart.

Save yourself. I'm out of here."

But they want to say,

"No.

I'm going all the way with you!

I'm here with you forever!

I want to make this commitment to you!"

People still want to do this!

Because no matter what we see in our lifetime,

this is still a universal human desire,

the desire to love forever.

And people still want to give themselves to that

and notice it and mark it as a special occasion

so that when they die -- aah! --

it doesn't seem like the most important thing in their life

was, what, having their appendix out?

Because everybody made such a big deal about that?

And love is an important thing.

It may be a necessary thing, even,

for the world to go on!

And so the wedding guests are there

because when two people make this promise to one another,

it's a happy occasion and the most important one.

And people like to share it

and leave town before the misery begins.

Out. [ Laughter ]

In.

So it turns out

you come to me to be with me,

and then as soon as you feel reassured that I love you,

you go back to your husband.

And then if I talk to you on the phone,

if I seem to be slipping away,

if I seem anxious or uncertain,

then you come back to me

and make love with me

and stay with me until you know you have me again.

I can't help myself loving you.

And then you go back to your husband again.

So it turns out the only way I can keep you

is by making you feel anxious.

Keeping you on edge.

Making you feel I'm about to drop you,

so the way to have you is to reject you.

And if they don't reject you, then I don't have you.

We are in a relationship that is sick,

where you show love by showing aversion.

You show aversion by showing love

so that you live a backwards life

and the one person you want to love and cherish

and show how much you care

is the one person you will drive away

by doing any of those things.

How can we go on like this?

This is insane.

This will make us both insane!

No one knows.

You think there's always time.

You think your life will go on and on

just the way it is today.

-And then -- -And then --

-But then -- -Boom. All gone.

They happen so quickly, and then they're gone.

The whole world, the universe, it's all gone.

It could be you forgot to say good night.

You might have had a difference of opinion at the dinner table,

or you might even have had an argument.

And you don't come out of the moment of it.

And then your grandmother falls into a coma

in the middle of the night.

You sit by her hospital bed hoping she'll wake up again,

just so you can say you're sorry,

and then she dies.

That's the truth of life. You have one great love.

You're born, you die. In between,

if you're lucky, you have one great love.

Not two, not three. Just one.

It can last for years, or it can last for a moment,

and then, can be years later or a moment later, you die.

And that's how it is to be human.

That's what the great poets and the dramatists have known.

How could you just suddenly disappear?

I didn't. I thought you did.

And I thought you loved me. Well, I do love you.

Oh, yes. You love me,

but you don't love me in that way.

I never pretended to love you in that way.

I can't go on in life without being loved in that way.

A lot of people are never loved in that way.

How can you tell if you're really alive

if you're never loved in that way?

What do you mean in that way?

Unless I thought you were crazy for me,

so crazy for me, you couldn't stand it.

You just had to kiss me,

just had to knock me down and kiss me

'cause you couldn't stand it, that you laughed at my jokes

or thought I was so cool

or said, like, really intelligent things

that made you think.

Well, maybe not all those things,

but even just one of them. Just one of them?

You see what I mean? Not even one. I'm sorry.

Why did you live with me, then?

I thought I loved you.

I guess I didn't know what love was.

I liked you in a way.

Not much, but in some ways,

or at least in the ways I thought guys could be likable.

And the rest of it I thought,

maybe that's just how guys are.

And as time went on,

maybe it wouldn't matter so much.

But then I find it does matter.

I can't help myself.

Some stuff you do, I just can't get over it.

And the stuff I liked,

that I thought you were a responsible person

and mature, solid, and dependable --

all those turned out not to be true at all.

So what am I left with?

It's not your fault. No, it is not.

Or maybe it is, that you weren't thinking very clearly

or being very focused when you made your choice.

And a lot of people were depending on that choice

being really clear.

At least I was.

I know. I'm sorry.

Being sorry doesn't cut it somehow.

I know people say they're sorry, and probably they are,

and I don't think it means nothing.

I'm sure it means something.

And it's essential for people to feel it and say it

in order for life to go on at all.

And yet the truth is it doesn't cut it.

I'm sorry, but it doesn't. I'm sorry.

Is that somehow now supposed to cut it?!

That's all. Just sleep in the same bed together, nothing more.

And then when you fall asleep, I'll look at you,

and I'll see how ugly you are when you're relaxed.

People forget, but about a thousand years ago,

they thought the world was coming to an end.

So people sold their worldly goods

and gave away their money

and went to the top of a mountain,

wherever they happened to be,

to wait for the end of the world.

And they waited and waited.

Some of them may still be there.

The Millenarians -- that's what they were called.

And what they saw finally

was that after the end of the world, life goes on.

That's how it was for the Greeks and Romans.

That's how it was for the Millenarians.

And then, later on, a couple hundred years later,

people in 1200,

they didn't even realize the world had come to an end.

They just raised their sheep amid the ruins

and got on with stealing and fornicating.

When you go to Arizona,

you can see the levels of sediment in the rock,

in the mesas that come up out of the desert,

all dried out for thousands of years,

hundreds of thousands of years.

And that horizontal stripe of red in the rock --

that was where the sea came up to.

Where you're standing now,

it was nothing but underwater animals.

And then the water levels fell, the fish all vanished,

and here you are, sitting at a picnic table,

thinking how beautiful this is, like heaven.

You know...

I've been thinking about it,

and it turns out,

I do love you.

You do?

[ Laughter ]

Yes.

How could that be?

I look at you, and I think you're sweet.

Oh. Sweet.

And good natured.

Good natured.

Yes.

You do?

Yes, I really do.

And I think if you think a person's agreeable

and warm-hearted,

then I think there's something there

you can't explain that gives you real delight.

Oh.

I find you give delight to me.

Oh, well, that's what I've hoped more than anything.

So would I.

And you're not sorry about it?

How do you mean?

That you find delight in someone

who doesn't seem in any other way desirable,

who doesn't perhaps have those qualities that you can count on

for, you know, the solid, long-term kind of thing?

I would just take delight long-term.

Oh!

So would I.
