Today's performance at Bluebell Meadow; cold, damp, challenging, surprising. There were only four of us there — Toshi, Noemí, Shavon, and I. The space is open. We begin along a single line of trees. We had planned to work on the other side of the trees but shift our plan thinking audiences who brave the weather might watch from their cars, a sort of drive-in performance. Many of the familiar elements of the site are absent: there is no wind, no blinding sunlight creating fantastic shadows, there are no dogs for the entire performance!
We begin. Don't question, just commit to the work and stay connected to ourselves, each other, and the environment; find ways to generate heat from the inside.
