This was at the Periwinkle Palace, for their monthly Performance Primer. The Periwinkle Palace is the only exclusively performance art and dance DIY venue in Oakland.
This was the first time I did Dance Therapy/Playback with the overhead projector. Looking at it now, it seems a little distracting, but I like it anyways.
Before the piece began, I went around to everyone in the room and asked them to write down the best part of their week and the worst part of their week. Since it was a Saturday, no one said anything about nothing happening yet. The receipt roll paper was an excellent choice, giving the participant an opportunity to write as much as they wanted. I didn’t get any that were surprisingly long.
