"X-1" is a long performance lyric for an actor. This script can be used across the spectrum of scripted, solo performance modes: reading to listeners, recital storytelling, empty stage monologue theater, and one man play supported by mummer-actors and sound- and video- commentary -- that the mummer-actors can "dance to", largely by mimicking/echoing the move-and-gesture of those who appear in the, possibly documentary, video companion-works. The plot -- such as it is -- of this performance piece is a man wakes up, gets up, and goes to work in the morning. He lives in an apartment with his wife and children in a large metropolitan area, and takes a subway train to work.
