NO FIXED POSITIONS with Dana Michel
(THAT IS A FIXED POSITION BUT IT IS ONE FIXED POSITION TO HAVE LESS FIXED POSITIONS)
This is an opportunity for us to make ____. Good ____, bad ____, new ____, old ____, personal ____, ____ that will potentially never be understood, ____ that is clear. Whatever ____ needs to be made in the next amount of minutes IS THE ____ THAT NEEDED TO BE MADE OVER THESE NEXT AMOUNT OF MINUTES. We will ____ on being present, on sharpening listening, on awakening our voices, on speaking and looking through our bodies, on softening our focus. This is another opportunity for us to meet other selves, our selves, and everything that runs between these selves. Over the next many minutes, we will engage in activities devised to instigate ____ which MAY or MAY NOT have incidence on your live-art creation practice. Let’s not look for specific shit, yeah? Anyway, please sign this “get lost or get lost contract” if you’d like to join along for this prescribed moment in time.
Suitable for professional dance artists, and artists who incorporate movement into their practice.
