August 20 - 27 , 2022.
Imagination has been one of the saddest casualties of the 21’st century (along with Opacity, a Sense of Humour, etc…) It is a collective cultural muscle that has atrophied with the over exercising of Facts, -which have a very important places in the world at large, of course- but, in the realm of creativity to stop at the Facts is to become a reporter, not an artist.
At Arts Letters and Numbers, End of the West will run a week-long workshop on Live Art Building, taught from each the basis of the three disciplines that we know best. Together, as a cohort, we will find, embody, and place stories in a created space, to dazzle our -as yet- unknown audience. We will resuscitate Imagination; giving it CPR by breathing into it Mystery and Wonder about this crazy planet we live on. We’re going to make stuff, that has never existed before…
