Let the Three Day Weekend continue! Audiences are welcome to contribute additional performances on an on-going basis, beyond the live event (Submissions for the live event closed on Monday, June 21st, 11:59 p.m. EST).

Oliver Herring’s "Three Day Weekend" harnesses the power of collaboration, spontaneity, movement and play to widen the definition of performer and performance. As the starting point for each performance, Oliver creates a series of phrased movements to challenge untrained performers to step away from their daily lives and to express themselves creatively through dance. With each new location and set of performers, the work evolves differently, all originating from the source of inspiration, yet yielding wildly diverse performances.

This challenge is now being passed to you as part of "The Present Perfect with Art21".

Film your own performance based on Oliver Herring’s "seed choreography." We want to see your version—whether solo or with friends, simplify or elaborate! Select submissions will be screened during The Present Perfect with Art21 on June 23rd, online at PBS.org and in person at the 92YTribeca in New York City. Unless you have Prokofiev’s "Dance of the Knights" handy, just blast the original version from your computer as you perform or chose your own sonic background.
