Nearly there: The Minneapolis Retreat
If you’re in the neighborhood, get in touch with me, and come on by.
Looks like it will be Meredith Lynsey Schade, myself, Alison Heimstead, and Eric Hoff (potential dramaturg/producing collaborator, via Sylvan Oswald), with Rachel Jendrezewski and Rachel Nelson joining us along the way. Alison is also pull in artists whose history in performance and activism could contribute to our thinking, and who may be potential teammates in various ways.
The retreat is our third – the first being in Massachussetts at Double Edge, and the second in Sonoma (CA).
Impossibility doesn’t stop our forward progress. Our desire may be perfect without knowing its object.
