Hi Folks, I’ll be helping in small ways with Panoply’s Institute_Institut project about reflections on the functions, foibles and roles of Institutions in daily life. They are currently looking for people to take 5 minutes or so to talk about institutions and I sure would appreciate it if you could come participate!
The final piece in the Transformational Grammar of the Institutional Glorybowltrilogy. Performances will be in early Fall, 2011.

Between Dec. 2010 and June 2011, PPL is conducting a series of Focus Workshops in Brooklyn, NY, investigating cultural structures, interpersonal politics, daily conceptions of reality, and institutional ecologies.
Seeking opinions, experiences, and feedback from individuals of all ages and from all backgrounds, these workshops form a public co-creation aspect of the experimental opera project Institute_Institut.
A Focus Workshop is part focus group and part thinktank. “Workshop” is used to note the performance-based perspective held by the workshop facilitators (the artists creating the project) and the performance research direction that some workshops take, depending on the interests of the participants.
Part I: Group Discussion. What are institutions? How do they function in your life? What are some of your experiences with them?
Part 2: Enactions, observations, and games.
All participants will receive a free ticket to the performances ofInstitute_Institut, in Fall 2011. The project is a staged documentary opera about authority, reality, institutionality, and sensibility. Issues and ideas discussed and researched through these Focus Workshops, as well as selected experiences, statements, and documentation from them (and many other forms of research) will largely form the libretto.
