Wading Bridge, Des Moines, IA
|Where I am:|
In Late September I'll be in Toronto launching Torus as part of Nuit Blanche curated by Christine Shaw "The Work of the Wind". Join us for a workshop that asks: In an era of schizophrenia, can art still bring us closer towards embodying the world we want? Extractive production and excessive consumption have become as violent as military activity. In this workshop we will extract consumption, gift in excess, and discuss ways that art, performance, and ritual can make spaces for mourning environmental loss. Through dialogue, diagramming, making and sharing rituals, we will task ourselves with re-mapping systems of the post-industrial/higher education/military complex, and draft steps towards forming the spaces we want to inhabit. We will spend time assembling a meditative space for a performance on the water that will take place during Nuit Blanche. During our time together we will continually question the following: Can we create more mindful rituals that point towards behavior change or even policy change? Could we spend more time discussing change with the choir? In an era of schizophrenia, can art still bring us closer towards embodying the world we want? To register follow this LINK
