A performance piece by Sadie Lune
On my 31st birthday I did a 5.5 hr long performance above the BART station at 16th and Mission in San Francisco. To learn to teach myself, I began by seeking out lessons from others. A few weeks in advance, I asked my community to send me, via email or text, suggestions for actions that took less than 20 mins to complete based on the concept of Teaching Myself to Love. I performed/interpreted 31 of the actions I received in the order in which I received them, starting at 11:11 am on 11-11-09.
