CITIZEN SCRIPT: 6 Cycles for Being Alone & Together

Beginning: 5 am, Sat. Oct. 22nd & Ending: 5 am, Sun. Oct. 23rd

A 24-Hour Participatory Reading culled from a ‘poesy’ of language gathered along 600 miles of a planned 3,000 mile long symbolic ‘walk across the US’. The reading will take place in six, four-hour cycles; each consisting only of language gathered on walks taken during those hours.

You are invited to join for any portion of the event; and to respond to the text as if it were a score for further movement, action, conversation. Drawing materials, blank wall space & a few instruments will be provided. Musicians – bring instruments, dancers – movement, everyone – yourselves! An unscripted dialogue will ensue…
