Description of performance 1 live collaborative performance
Summary Two of the ideas taken into collaborative groups emerging within the workshop symposia were: 1. models of collaboration and 2. notions of the gift and gift economy. This research addressed the idea of stepping on other to progress. And asks the question as to how whether one will literally step on another person and how one handles this delicate proposition when confronted with it the notion of putting their weight on the bodies of several people lying on the ground. In this performance, several people lie on the floor blocking access to a entrance way. Persons wishing to enter the space for activities in the community hall, must walk over the person lying on the floor. Two assistants advise, guide and encourage persons entering the hallway if they request or look in need of assistance traversing the human bridge.
