More on Tenderloin National Forest Butoh Performance

Here is more on the interesting process behind the Butoh piece for the Tenderloin National Forest Grand Opening.

This is Christina Braun's brief outline of her collaboration with composer Jeffrey Scott Perry
for their improve piece that will be performed at 5:45pm on Saturday:
Butoh dance score by Christina Braun inspired by Mayan hummingbird legend and Emily Dickinson for new site specific performnce: Nectar 1, May 9, 2009, San Francisco Tenderloin National Forest Opening Event:
Jeffrey Scott Perry's music begins.
I become the poem/myth/music.
I accept the transformation.
Flutter-by into the waving so
Sit at the music maker's fee
Listening with smal secret gestures.
Flower petals fall.

Spiders weave.
The sun groom glows and dazzles,
the red bride answers with an exquisite vibration.
United, we r
eturn, erase.
