THERE IS ONLY ONE MIND PERFORMANCE

THERE IS ONLY ONE MIND PERFORMANCE
LINDA MARY MONTANO with LISA BARNARD KELLEY will present a performance titled: THERE IS ONLY ONE MIND.

While 2 looped videos of JILL BOLTE TAYLOR and FATHER BEDE GRIFFITH talking of their left brain strokes are playing, Montano and LISA BARNARD KELLEY  will walk slowly into the space from different sides of the room. "Technicians" in white lab coats will be sitting at a table and will wire their bodies at different sites and then they will both get into a mechanical lift, raise it 14 feet into the air and perform actions/live sounds which will be mixed with the wired body sounds. The "Technicians " will keep time and after 33 minutes, the video and accompaning sounds stop, and MONTANO/KELLEY will lower themselves down from the lift, then walk into the audience and offer water "blessings".
