Public Performance Festival in Lenzburg Switzerland,

On Saturday June 18, 2016 I was invited to perform in a performance festival with seven other artists. We created works for public space choosing sites in the city. I decided to perform an adaptation of a lecture performance I had created for Dfbrl8r called What is the definition of territory? that came out of studying the archetypes in the Dream Minds poetry. I embroidered two blindfolds for the public to wear that had the words bodies and territory stitched onto them. The performance was interactive and wove elements from the Neighborhood Magic poem for Stephen Thomas entitled Ode to Ishi. I ended the performance by singing the choreopoem under the arches on top of a circular man hole cover.
