Few Words, Many Thanks.

November 25, 2010

After a night of contemplating how to give thanks for an unbelievably surprising and full year, I have no words, save “yes” and “I love you (Oh, and caution – slight nudity at the end of this post).” Happy Thanksgiving, my friends!

So if this is life, bring it on! To my friends, family, readers, and Googlers from Seattle to New York, Los Angeles to Key West, thank you for reading this far and supporting the journey along the way. Embrace change and each other today. I for one, will enjoy a truly snowy white and happy Thanksgiving and hope to see most of you, if not tomorrow, very soon.

    Hi,

    I read your blog a while back after the Dumbo Arts Festival and commented on your being a part of the Tableau Vivant show. You were kind enough to respond in the comments. For background, we stumbled on the performance when we went to the bookstore and was told a performance was about to start, so we stayed.

    First, more power to you for posting the video where all your friends could see you. It is one thing to perform naked in public and have it disappear, or to have it appear generally on the Internet, but another to directly link it to yourself for the world (and your friends, family and future significant others) to find and see it. Perhaps this is part of your liberation and “skydiving” experience.

    Second, and more importantly, can you please explain what the performance meant? we watched the original performance, and the video, and remain confused. I’ve also read Ms. Small’s site, but I still don’t get it. Since it was apparently such a significant experience for you, I’m also curious what you got out of it (beyond the freeing experience of being naked on a stage).

    By that I mean I don’t understand the message or meaning other than the nudity and singing (beautiful by the way). Perhaps I’m not that understanding of modern art or concept pieces (I once saw a “play” in the East Village, I think by Mac Wellman, and had similar difficulty). Yes, it is rather interesting to see naked people, and the different bodies, sizes and types, and to watch them sort of interact or move about, and to have it done to music, but to what effect? How was the performance described to you when you auditioned and during rehearsals? What was Ms. Small telling or describing when she wanted the actors/actresses to move? Were the movements choreographed in a particular way for a particular reason? This was why I had googled Tableau Vivant after the show and found your blog.

    Thanks for listening and I look forward to your response (but rest and have fun–no need for an immediate response, or any if you prefer).
