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.
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 ….
Overflowing blanket circumstances,
Lines, small, scribbling,
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
Red and polka-dotted bones,
Hungry eyes for meatless sculls.
