(Instant) P

Intensive composition workshop “inside out and upside down” by Mary Armentrout in the  Milk Bar. The Milk Bar is located in East Oakland in the Sunshine Biscuit Factory Complex.

(Instant) P…

happened after 2 hours of Armentrout’s Feldenkrais exploration, continued by free drawing, free writing and culminated in a site specific performance everywhere on the inspirational Sunshine Biscuit!

Here we go ….

Horizontal horizon,

Overflowing blanket circumstances,

Lines, small, scribbling,

Stinky foreclosures,

Closing doors

Holes in mysteries,

Holes in pots and spices.

Cinderella’s shoe is on the tree,

An oak tree with big leaves in Finland

Next to a lake.

Drinking clouds of sunset water,

Waves of tinkering bubbles, sprinkles and fountains.

Nine minutes of boom with a dog so afraid,

Mermaids, tailors, shoe cleaners

Singing Humpty Dumpty’s hymn.

Whales whining in the deep ocean,

Volunteering to suffer more than the

Cows in the mountains.

Terrestrial landing after dreams of

Squishing fish,

Red and polka-dotted bones,

Hungry eyes for meatless sculls.

  1. Hallo Carmen!
    Ich wünsche dir viel Spaß und Erfolg bei deinem Kurs!!!
    Vor 2 Wochen war ich wähjrend meines USA-Westküsten-Urlaubes ffür 2 Nächte in San Francisco. Tolle Stadt aber seltsames Wetter, es waren teilweise nur 15°!
    Ich hoffe, dass es dir gut geht! Alles Liebe aus Mainz,

    • Was! Du warst hier und wir haben uns nicht gesehen!! Ich wohne auf der anderen Seite des Wassers. Wir hätten uns gar zum lunch treffen können.

      Liebste Grüße,
