The performance "Cookies" by Ensemble 209, designed specifically for a small group, includes a series of actions that resemble associative poetry. Evident throughout is the focus on foodstuffs and cookie baking (along with the computer-related definition of "cookie"). Words derived from each of the letters in the word "performance" delineate a sequence of actions that address the body, objects, foods, communication with the audience and more. The poetic situations and absurdities create a flurry of events – a kind of poetry game that is unpredictable and imagination inspiring, with sound effects and stunts providing an essential part of the action. This work was created as one of a series by Tamar Raban titled LEPP (meaning a performance class in English and performance of an English class), a project that establishes a lexicon of performance statements.
