Ophelia arrives in the ballroom one morning. Overnight, Johnnie has brought a giant sculpture of a rocket into the space.
O: Why is this here?
J: This is part of the show. Respond to it!
O: You should have warned me you were going to do this, that you were trying this out!
J: I don’t have to ask for your permission to do everything.
O: Of course you do. This is a duo show. You have to be careful of the others work.
J: No! In a collaboration you do things to provoke and the other responds!
O: But this is a huge macho thing! A massive phallus has invaded the space. Who are you to do this? You’re no one Johnnie. It’s nice for you to do a show with me!
J: It’s too reductive to read it that way! Speaking of macho I’ve been all over the place letting you change my ideas and you have not changed anything in your approach. Don’t speak to me like that. Be careful.
The rocket stays, Ophelia and Johnnie leave the room separately.
