Aesthetic

My tutors make suggestions.
We talked about Stars in their Eyes, the mimicry and emptiness of the performances. About musical theatre, actors spontaneously bursting into song as though it was the most natural thing. To look at the performativity of glam rock, someone else suggested. But these forms of song performance all seem so crass for me, so false, so theatrical. As phenomena of course they are worth researching - they will get pages in my research 'cuttings' books :) - but in terms of my performance, the aesthetic will be much more subtle, somehow, i hope. I wonder what the hell i'll do. At least I know what I dont want to do :)
