LEAGUE OF BURNT CHILDREN [DOES] ON REVOLUTION
by Hannah Arendt
including new performances by:
we "show" the VITAL importance of INSERTING OUR /triangular\ BODIES in these [SQUARE] spaces, our fleshy/bloody presence in the physical world -- and not just the ghosts of "virtual activism"
we initiate ourselves into the PLUTO-URANUS SQUARE (it's in the **stars** baby!) which previously heralded the French Revolution, the social uprisings of the 30s and 60s and now the so-called ARAB SPRING
:::::::WE PUSH BACK AGAINST THE RELENTLESS YUPPIFICATION OF OUR COMMUNITY SPACES AND THE HERDING OF ARTISTS INTO "APPROVED" SPACES (like ybca) AND SEND CITY "OFFICIALS" A CLEAR REMINDER:::::::
******THESE ARE OUR STREETS. THIS IS OUR CITY. AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO BE THE ////FREAKS\\\\ WE WERE BORN TO BE DESPITE THE MILITANT S.F. SQUEEZE******
(Walk Like an Egyptian)
++NOTHING HAPPENS UNLESS WE SHOW UP.++ AND THAT'S A FACT++
We will be opening up those "spaces of freedom" (the polis) that Hannah Arendt talks about in her classic text on comparative revolution. BRING YOUR (very queer) VISION OF WHAT YOU WANT THE WORLD TO LOOK LIKE. Show us your "experiments in living." What does ***REVOLUTION*** mean to YOU -- in your daily life -- anyway???
Whatever happens, THE SHOW MUST GO ON.
In other words------
LET'S ALL CUM TOGETHER
. . .. WALK LIKE AN EGYPTIAN . . . .
