Social Behavior Craftsmen/womyn

I have been catching up on the writings/theories of Marcel Duchamp and Joseph Beuys.

Each in their own right challenged contemporary artists to reconsider their broader role in society.

I have long believed that movements artists/dancers offer us new visions for how people can relate to each other. The stage can be approached as an incubator for social behavior.

I am creating scores that take what I’m learning from my creative practice out into the world.

Suggestions for remodeling US social interactions
1. Fill long silences during phone conversations with resonant, sonorous humming
2. Repeat in your head “I support you” while others are talking
3. Stand with your palms facing your conversation partner
4. Carry supplies in your bag to help meet the needs of others (extra water, food, reading material)
5. Include members of your community in your first thoughts of the day

Please send me your thoughts, or post them on the public Wiki -http://socialpractices.wikispaces.com/SocialInteractions
