Since I received my MFA for the CHICKEN SHOW at UWM,  I would like to do something like the following:


1. MONTANO as Bob Dylan on a 14 foot lift in a "space" where lighting/video and good audio tech is possible...singing THE BOOK OF JOB as Bob Dylan.  When I come down, we all dance to  ADDICTED TO LOVE.

2. Montano as MOTHER THERESA locked into a space for 3 days in meditation(portable toilet and video camera on me so "audience " can view me.....)I come out, "bless" all and we all dance to ADDICTED TO LOVE

3. WITH 14 VOLUNTEERS : FOR 7 hours I move through the "internal movements of the 7 glands, one an hour while blindfolded).. Each 7 hours, for a half hour, an agricultural  grad talks about or reads chicken info; the second half hour 7 people from other grad schools u r affiliated with, read collected stories or medical info about the 7 glands. A dvd of chickens is projected. I am on the floor, blindfolded , with chicken hat, in movement for 7 hours. At end of 7 hours, those present , dance to ADDICTED TO LOVE.

4. I present: WHAT THE BUDDHA MIGHT HAVE SEEN WHEN HE LEFT THE PALACE.  2 videos...One is about the fact that  I am someone in need of "caretaking" by a nurse caregiver. Titled NURSE NURSE. It  can see it on U TUBE.
Other  is titled; LIVING ART, DYING ART. It is on You Tube..
 And during these 2 videos I interact with the audience as an ANGEL WITH CHICKEN FEATURES.  At the end, we all dance to ADDICTED TO LOVE

5. I co-perform my website(story of my work and process) with those present so it is an interactive, totally wild and not so stuffy artist's "talk". Have done it before and it takes the sting out of  LOOK AT ME!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
We all dance to ADDICTED TO LOVE at the end. Prizes are given.
6. MORNING: For 3 and a half hours , I am standing on a 14 foot scissors lift, making chicken sounds, outside.
A projected chicken tape is playing behind me or live chickens are in a big cage surrounding me.
AFTERNOON: For 3 and a half hours, I perform the same either inside or outside. There will be a procession of  CHICKENETTES,  following the moving scissors lift , to a final "place" where we all perform ADDICTED TO LOVE,  7 times.
7. Any other possibility.
