MR Festival Spring 2008: Somewhere Out There

one door closes and another

opens again again again it’s hell in the hallway

balls and blocks the scrape of the curtain rod the roar

of the crowd no printer cartridges were harmed

in the making of this performance

hubbada hubbada hubbada

shoosh the leaky valve

heartbeat of america

tiny heels a decision to just lie there

sharing is caring

i’m kinda bored of trio a pile up

what is the equivalent of knowing

something as a dancer to embody it

generation that’s my decentralized

mimics went to a juggling act

and postmodern dance broke out

went to a conversation and a

batch of equipment broke out

went to a studio and a rampage

broke out there

‘s a reason for houselights down

to distract you from you

paper paper paper paper how green

was my evening


I wanted to add something here about how I began to see the audience as a set, but I’m not sure how to do that. So, I will leave this partial poem as is, and I invite you to think of it as a wiki-poem, copy the oriig and add/subtract/invent as you see fit.
