CHICKEN LINDA SINGS THE 7 GLANDS/CHAKRAS FOR 7 HOURS TO GIVE COURAGE TO THE WORLD WHILE ACCOMPAINED BY THE GLANDETTES
For 14 years, 1984-1998, I endured and performed, 14 YEARS OF LIVING ART. It allowed me to spend time with the Hindu Theology of Chakras which have informed and inspired my work since then.
Because not everyone enjoys the concept of Chakras, I have reworded my interest and now refer to the 7 Glands of the body which EVERYONE shares. This performance is a way to honor the body and also reference the fact that the world needs healing as well as each of us.
Hopefully we all will benefit.
CHICKEN LINDA SINGS THE 7 GLANDS/CHAKRAS FOR 7 HOURS TO GIVE COURAGE TO THE WORLD WHILE ACCOMPAINED BY THE GLANETTES
For the performance I will:
1. Lay in the middle of the performance space on my back for 7 hours, sounding the 7 chakras/glands. I will wear a chicken costume/mask.
2. Every hour I will move my hands to another gland and articulate that gland with sound when reminded to do so by the GLANDETTES.
3. The space will include a circle of chicken feed which surrounds us.
4. Two chickens a male and female or 7 chickens are free to move inside the space and eat the chicken food.
5. 7 chairs around me and 7 volunteer GLANDETTES will move/dance/check their email on their iphones or just sit on the chairs for the seven hours. They will wear only one color: for example all red or all orange or all yellow etc depending on the gland they represent. And sun glasses. They will indicate to me to change my focus each hour. So for first hour, the red GLANDETTE will indicate for me to pay attention to the first gland, ovaries-testes. For the second hour, the orange GLANDETTE will indicate to me to pay attention to the second gland, pancreas.
6. A projection of a TV station with international/world news plays/sounds for the entire 7 hours.
