I’m in the creation phase of a public performance project. I’m going to have amazing mind sex with the idea of Public Dreaming. It’s gonna be great.
What is Pubic Dreaming? Who does it? In what ‘Public’? QUESTIONS! So many questions… I’m really excited to start mapping out how, for example, I might dream on the bus about seeing an ad saying, “Pregnant? In crisis? Call the PEOPLE WHO CARE hotline now! Speak to a non-judgmental human being who can tell you about abortion, adoption, parenting, or communal living supports!”
Or, another idea that excites me very much = dreaming about really raunchy queer sex romps while in line to pay for my lunch at the Municipal Administration building. (Or in any staunch, sterile place, really.)
While gathering inspiration via the internet, I found THIS! (http://www.lucidstage.com/event/welcome-to-homo-hollow-8pm/) Here’s an excerpt to explain:
“The Eggplant Faerie Players is a vaudeville circus troupe based at the queer community of Ida in the buckle of the Bible belt in Tennessee. Eggplant uses juggling, unicycles, stilts, satire, dance and drag to engage, challenge and electrify young and old alike. Picture Dame Edna and W.C. Fields doing Shakespeare.”
I’m now going to go fall asleep and see what image of the Eggplant Players I can conjure up in Zzz Land…
