THINGS TO DO OR THINK ABOUT WHEN I RETURN
June 26, 2015
Play on work by Julian Hetzel: Turning the body and looking up at the sky, feeling completely content and unaware of agitated surroundings.
Make a story about the strip club experience.
Play on work by Voin de Voin: Opening up space between crowds of moving people, by –with a group- slowly forming a circle with barrier tape, in my case in the shapes of a red cross, a half moon and a diamond [universally acknowledged symbols of emergency].
In a narrow alley temporarily placing a small elevated stage, 3 steps up, small platform, 3 steps down.
Forming an orchestra of skilled musicians on a stage in public space who improvise on emerging sounds. To qualify these sounds must be disruptive, so beside the obvious sirens it might be a hard BANG, a woman screaming or a violent shout or gesture.
Writing an article about how artists move through a city that is not their own, commenting, reacting, adapting their ideas to fit in with other cultural narratives. How politically oriented can and should you be, how to be free of presupposed statements as a stranger in a strange land?
