Wonder and Resilience: Honoring hidden memories in the land, reintegrating what we ostracize
Wonder and Resilience: There is no one who is outside the human community
'A Great Unbridgeable Distance' will be a series of nightly durational-performance meditations in garden spaces in Downtown Park, guided by a trans-disciplinary cohort of guides brought together and costumed by artist Mandy Greer and Fallow Collective.
Bring a blanket, bring a picnic, rest, move, come and go as you please, participate or just watch.
Anyone is invited to assemble around the rough hewn elm tables, and rest on the communally hand-woven indigo rugs, in this space held for contemplation and learning through hand-work. Together we’ll seek for a sense of place and history in our internal and external landscapes, making peace with our darkness both personally and societally, and pay homage to remembrances of the sweetness of life and the hard work of turning to the light.
Over the course of 10 evenings, a non-linear narrative of loss, regret, shame and also of resiliency, wonder and resistance will be woven together for those who come to participate in any way they desire. Through simple but poetic shared meaningful experiences, all who gather will be guided towards bridging the distances between ourselves and our other companions on this earth.
