same river twice
a collaboration with Billy McGuinness
Second Floor Rear Festival, Chicago
Archer Ballroom, Chicago
Same River Twice is a performance investigation of Fluxus scores, events, and happenings. Drawing on the rich history of Fluxus, the performance both pays homage through interpreting various scores/instructions from artists such as Ken Friedman, Ben Vautier, Emmett Williams, Alison Knowles, and George Maciunas (amongst others) and re-imagines Fluxus through a devised performance of these works. The scores themselves are scored and curated – overlapping, conversing, contrasting, flowing into the other – inviting humor, participatory engagement, and a deepened awareness of the world around us.
