Sample Script v.01:

It’s legal in California-so, let’s talk.

First, if you’re 21 or older, you can buy and grow cannabis within the legal limit.

But keep your bud in California. Under federal law it’s not legal, so don’t cross state lines with it, or use it on federal lands.

Also, landlords, employers, cities, and counties may have stricter rules than the state.

Now, be aware, marijuana use comes with risks…

If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, don’t use.

And when it comes to young people, it’s not okay, their brains are still developing and cannabis can have lifelong consequences.

Adults, if you choose to use, do it responsibly.

Store all cannabis products where children and pets can’t see or reach them.

Today’s weed is a lot stronger than it used to be. It affects everyone differently, especially edibles.

They can take hours to fully kick in.

And never drive while high, it’s dangerous, and you could get a DUI.

Narration Tone: Composed, yet mildly afraid and impatient. A call for assistance. Don’t be slow on the pacing at first, but start to slow down when you reach ‘his bedroom light’. Be worried for your safety.

“Mr. Waters, it is January 5th, and I’ve just moved back to my dorm after a month away for winter break. We’ve met many times before but for the last time - I implore you to hear me out once more.

I received an email a couple days ago saying that our room was vacant, yet that doesn’t seem to be the case because I noticed - his bedroom light - was still on - flickering from the bottom crevice of his door. Oh I can tell it’s him - for his presence is ominously evident.”

Narration Tone: Incredibly Frustrated, Rushing your phrases but still concise with each word.

“Everytime I try to call Aaron out, he just stares me in the eye with that grotesque face of his and doesn’t say a goddamn word. Until finally he just hobbles back into his room with that spiteful smirk, he’s so crazy that I’m gonna go berserk! ‘“I’m going to knock your ass out Charles!” “I don’t care Charles!” “You clean that up Charles!” “You don’t give me respect Charles!”. Word by word just another psychotic slur he spits out in the corner of his lonely bedroom. What did I even do for this!?”

The WOMB, MOVEMENT WORKSHOP – NOTICE EXPIRES JAN. 1 - Cemre Su Salur, actor-performance artist-dancer, is casting The Womb, a movement workshop inspired by 5 Rhythms & Grotowski techniques; it is an experimental exploration of our physical expression. Performance artist states: "Finding a space where we can surrender to fully express and let go can be challenging nowadays. This workshop invites you to go on a journey in seven flows, designed to release both physically and emotionally with music throughout the process. These seven flows are just textures and imagination triggering elements, which will allow the body to find release. The purpose of The Womb is to help the performative body to break out of habits in a space that is safe, tribal, and inviting. This workshop for the first few rounds will only be open for individuals who are female, or who identify themselves as female. As an artist, I've always been interested in the female body. How it occupies space and how it has been existing throughout history. How rigid traditions, countless rituals, shame, guilt, and fear have left their marks on our bodies and souls. With this workshop I aim to allow female bodies to create space to surrender, share and explore their unique female memory." Date and time TBD at Lucid Body House, 230 Lexington Ave., NYC. This will be a weekly, ongoing workshop. No pay. Fees: Early Release: $15; Second Release: $20; Final Release: $25. Minimum ten participants. Seeking—Participants: Female, 18+.
