7 VIEWS OF 14 YEARS OF LIVING ART, 34 YEARS LATER: AN INTERACTIVE OPERA



7 VIEWS OF 14 YEARS OF LIVING ART, 34 YEARS LATER: AN INTERACTIVE OPERA



AUDIENCE PARTICIPATES; ONE HALF HUM/ ONE HALF SINGS AT THE END OF EACH ARIA: " THANK YOU ART FOR GIVING ME LIFE."



ARIA 1: 34 YEARS AGO i THOUGHT THAT I COULD UNPACK PERSONAL PAIN AND DISTRACT MYSELF FROM THE COMPLICATIONS OF MY HISTORY BY CONTROLLING EVERY MINUTE OF EVERY DAY AND CALL THAT ART. IT DID.  "THANK YOU ART FOR GIVING ME LIFE."



ARIA 2:  34 YEARS AGO I IMITATED THE LEGALIZED LANGUAGE OF SPIRITUAL INSTITUTIONS WHICH REGULATE LIVES VIA RULES ABOUT CLOTHING BY PUNITIVELY FOCUSING ON DAILY ACTIONS AND SLAVISH RITUALS WHICH BLINDFOLD FREEDOM. IT WORKED. " THANK YOU ART FOR GIVING ME LIFE."



ARIA 3: 34 YEARS AGO I IMITATED MY HINDU GURU'S LOVE OF THE CHAKRAS AND OUT OF LOYALTY TO HIM, I CREATED A SELF IMPOSED RECIPE WHICH I QUESTIONED/DISSOLVED AT THE 13TH YEAR WHEN I WENT TO INDIA AND REALIZED WITH EMBARRASSMENT THAT HINDU SCHOLARS KNOW ABOUT CHAKRAS, THEN I DO. I STOPPED BORROWING THEIR THEOLOGY SO  NOW I TALK ABOUT GLANDS INSTEAD. "  THANK YOU ART FOR GIVING ME LIFE."



ARIA 4:  34 YEARS AGO I FLIRTED WITH FIRE BY OPENING THE CHAKRAS AND INNOCENTLY PLAYING WITH A POWER AND SECRET TRADITION THAT HARNESSES INTERNAL ENERGIES.  I BURNED.  "THANK YOU ART FOR GIVING ME LIFE."



ARIA 5. 34 YEARS AGO, I SUCCESSFULLY AVOIDED AIDS BY WRITING ABOUT SEX INSTEAD OF HAVING IT WITH MANY PARTNERS. I WROTE.  THANK YOU ART FOR GIVING ME LIFE.



ARIA 6: 34 YEARS AGO I INITIATED MYSELF INTO  A FAUX PRIESTHOOD  OF HOLY SOUNDING THEOLOGICAL RULES AND REGULATIONS WHICH I WOULD SOMETIMES BREAK SO THAT I COULD FINALLY BECOME A WOMAN PRIEST AND FORGIVE MYSELF FOR ALL OF THE SINS OF MY LIFE.  I FORGAVE MYSELF. "THANK YOU ART FOR GIVING ME LIFE."



ARIA 7: 34 YEARS AGO I WAS CONVINCED THAT I CONTROLLED TIME, THINKING IT WOULD NOT CONTROL ME AND THAT I WOULD NOT DIE. FOR 14 YEARS IT WORKED. 34 YEARS LATER, I SURRENDER.  TIME IS UP. " THANK YOU ART FOR GIVING ME LIFE."
