Rapt Gifts: Serially

Performance workshop Summer 2021, Madison, WI 
Part of Homestretch Art, a festival of artistic acts 

Part I

Objects and printed patterns on paper are provided as materials for a gift exchange. 

We talk about gift traditions and stories while wrapping objects, then give them to one another.


Part II

A gift lays breathing in the park. As participants come, they lay down their gifts near me. Thanks to audience participation, I am unwrapped! Then the gift exchange continues.
