Reading the Dead
Sunday, February 10, 2013
Beginning with Bachelard’s notion of “dreams of will,” members of the CT+CR Collective read from the dream works of the dead, some with resurrectional intent. Taking the form of a live mimic model or exquisite corpse and executed according to strict time-based rules and restraints, first and foremost being the rule that the author must be dead, this performance explores recitation, in and of itself, as a form of social dreaming, involving interpolations of past, present, and future as well as complex aggregates of individual, dyadic, and collective will. Filmed by Holly Andres and jD White. Postproduction by Miles Johnson and Evangelina Owens.
