Performances

My performative practice has evolved from body performances caught on camera to public ritual performances to collaborative community projects that are sometimes scripted and sometimes formulated through consensus. In addition, spontaneous performative acts that respond to the moment are of more interest to me of late and have become more frequent because risk is still an active factor and therefore it can’t help but be fresh even if you fall on the floor. Today I view myself as an active participant in international groups of artists who travel and carry the spirit of that nomadic community with them. The dialogues that circulate from this community are often expanded on the internet and actualized through projects on sites around the globe.

My production has become increasingly more project based often incorporating a hybrid of processes while frequently becoming participitory community enterprise. (Scroll down to Activism/ Groups for more on perfomative practice). The following annotated entries cover many of my performance projects from the 70s to the present.
