Core Tenets of BOOK CLUBBING:
As with any participatory performance, the following are to be expected: An element of improvisation, unscripted responses, and the somewhat uncomfortable feeling of being tested within our boundaries. We ask that all participants be aware of this ahead of time and that they come with the following core tenets in mind:
A willingness to listen, participate, motivate others, and understand and value the stories and experiences of others in an experimental artful setting. We are ultimately creating the performance together.
Everyone’s view is welcome, everyone brings a stone to the edifice. We want to create an open space that reinforces the idea that we all thrive when there is no hierarchy of experts and non-experts, artists and non-artists. We all have something important to contribute.
We encourage participants to consider the collective whole as well as their own individual experiences and explore new possibilities to grow and learn.
Empowered by critical thinking and enriched by experience, we want to rethink and reimagine the current systems and structures that shape the world and the lives of many: What can we learn from the past, what will we change for the future?
- We don’t talk about Book Club(bing)
…or, in other (famous) words, “What happens at BOOK CLUB stays at BOOK CLUB.” A performance setting is often imbued with raw emotion, making it the perfect environment for participants to push their own boundaries. We understand that participants may share views or perform actions that fit within the setting of the performance, but that they may not want shared outside of that setting. With this in mind, please feel free to share what an amazing experience you had at BOOK CLUBBING but refrain from sharing particular views or situations that took place. After all, the reward for participants is also to have been there and done it, think about it as a rite of passage, that only a select few get to experience; and above all ….
Enjoy the experience!
