BACK FROM BLACK MOUNTAIN!

I am back in suddenly spring-like New York City (daffodils, daffodils) and continuing to relish the profound experience of performing at the annual {Re}HAPPENING festival last weekend.

Feast your eyes on a video documenting the tent of Cage Die Bird Flies images/texts that painter Dale Williams and I erected on the campus of Black Mountain College in North Carolina on April 4. The body of water is Lake Eden. The trees inspired me to dream of a man wearing pine cone buttons. The wind was not our friend at first, but we negotiated a delicate truce soon enough, and for the duration of the event the next night, this structure proved to be a trustworthy cocoon for our vaudevillian songs, monologues, dances.

Next week I’ll be posting more documentation of our trip and its many marvelous ramifications.
