"ElElAr" -- acromimic for "Lincoln Lyceum Remix" -- is a script for spoken-word performance by a small team of players. It remixes, considerably changing, the script of the speech delivered by Abraham Lincoln on January 27, 1838 at the Lyceum of Springfield, Illinois. The subject of the speech was "The Perpetuation of Our Political Institutions". Performers of this variation -- or study -- in verbatim theater, may find useful a remark about its provenance: it was devised for acting students interested in bringing practices from their Performing Arts studies into their Politics and Government, Political Science, American History, etc. studies.
