On the stage is a table with a plugged in electric kettle filled with water. A mug with a tea bag inside sits next to it.
Sitting on a rolling office chair, Kate is pushed on stage. Her rolling is slightly out of control, but she rights herself before she reaches the table. She stops the chair at the table and turns the electric kettle on.
Kate stands up and moves to center stage. When she arrives, she moves each limb individually in an arc.
Then she moves her right arm and her right leg in a swooping motion. She repeats the motion for her left arm and left leg.
Then she moves her right arm and left leg together in an across-the-body motion. She repeats the motion for her left arm and her right leg.
Then Kate arabesques, alternating between lifting her right leg and left leg behind her as she moves around the stage.
Kate continues to move her body, arms, and legs in movements that approximate ballet, but never rise to a level of ability or precision.
Kate rolls and swoops her body around the space in increasingly erratic movements until the electric kettle boils and shuts itself off.
Kate stops moving and walks over to the kettle. She pours the hot water over the tea bag in the mug. She sets down the kettle and picks up the mug, dunking the tea bag repeatedly in the water.
She sits down on the rolling chair and pushes herself off stage.
