Lone Twin inspiring the Library

Lone Twins performance Ghost Dance is an interesting display which I believe may be beneficial towards our performance in the library. This piece of art is constructed of two men dressed as cowboys, blindfolded and simply doing a line dance in unison continuously for 12 hours in silence. Performed only once or twice a year in different locations, this performance is not advertised before hand and audience members would all merely stumble across it in the street, art gallery etc.

However, although audience members did not purposefully go to see Lone Twin’s piece, it was common for members of the public to join in with this well known dance throughout the 12 hours, supporting and cheering on the two performers. This created a communal spirit in environments where strangers would not usually interact and this is what we hope to create in our performance. By putting ourselves in a unique position infront of the public we may be able to force upon them an interaction, such as by wearing particular outfits (like Lone Twin in Cowboy costumes) or repeatng a routine an audience member would feel comfortable and enjoy joining in with.

However we approach it, I think it would be interesting to show that the environment is no longer isolated and everybody who enters the library is an individual, not a number. It may also be interesting to take a photograph of each audience member we interact with holding a white board with their student number on and leave these photos as a collage in th library, to clearly state that they are an individual and not a number. I will explain more about that idea in my next post.

    It’s in fact very complex in this busy life to listen news on Television, so I only use the web for that reason, and get the latest information.
