currently, this life is pulling me out of the cocoon i've been settled into after being quiet and composed for several years studying sustainable life practices, healing arts, and birth. i am awaking & igniting my expressive, creative fire as a seed in potently fertile soil. a seed of unknown future form. a mystery. me.
i am ready to arrive here. to vision and create. to use my flooding vital energy in ways that funnel my flow into form and performance. i have some passions, some places where i get really emergent and fizzly. particularly around weaving connections where resources of things/knowledge/wisdom are shared locally and also where humans/animals/plants/stones/life is valued deeply.
what i mean when i say these things is that i'm interested in exploring participatory performance which may sometimes look like an installation, and sometimes like theater, and sometimes like a collective art-making experiment, and sometimes like a class/workshop/educational/ceremonial space.
i want to find others who share my passions and interests and are really excited to explore the potential of beauty existing everywhere, of performance as transformative for the audience and the artists, and who are interested in multi-media, multi-dimensional possibilities.
i am NOT a trained artist. i AM a life artist. i exist creatively. i like decorating space and making things multi-dimensional. i like moving and expressing as a mover. i like using my voice and want to explore that more. i love the process of creation happening. sometimes i don't care much about the product. sometimes i do. it's deep spirit work for me. and i want more people around me who like to tap in, let go, be free.
and also who want to play, and inspire each other. and who consider all life as art. and who want to nurture that in local communities. and document things in various ways. and share them.
i'm good at organizing, communicating, holding space. i'm also good at initiating, visioning, finding the steps to take to bring visions into form. i'm good at being a leader/facilitator/teacher and feel very comfortable in that role. i am also accustomed to letting the reigns go and listening to others, assisting, supporting, giving, etc.
i'm currently visioning a specific experiment that involves creating a potentially mobile performance with beautiful installation/set design which expresses the potential of transformed culture. what CAN this world be? what CAN our lives become if we live into our dreams? WHAT are our highest dreams of how life can be? What would those feel like and look like here on the planet, in our local communities? HOW can we create a participatory performance that helps us bridge highest vision/dream world and the life we live? And how can we encourage people to build local web-works during the performances that can nurture these dreams entering the mundane realm? What is holding us back from living our truest visions? How can we let whatever is in our way go? How can we fall into our dreams as if we are falling in love? And more.
Perhaps this kind of performative experiment could then become a supportive weekly community connection ritual/group where we come together to track our progress, share honestly about where we're at, solicit support, inspire each other, etc. A collective of culture creators/transformers spun from an initial performance piece. Why not?
Anyone feel resonance/interest????
