Gone Dark - Fancy Feast
Stage performance has been the axis around which my identity orbits. For the first time in a decade, I have no gigs on the books. This is the time of great dissolution, of unmaking and remaking, of artists and audience shut up in their homes without each other. Performers and their crowds mirror each other's emotional states like babies and caregivers mimicking one another as a form of survival bonding. Without that feedback process, we are all in a wilderness. Performing has been my survival strategy, and it is bewildering to have the floor fall out from underneath my community.
