"Dear viewer, I find myself wondering what it is you want from me. You see, you and I have a very unique relationship and I am often left without knowing how you truly feel. Should I expect something different, or am I to entice you once more and ask you to linger a little longer? Your contribution up until this point, well let’s just say leaves little to be desired. As I feel not much will change today or in the near future I will leave you with only a few minor asks. 

When we finally meet again let us not abandon the place where we were when we first arrived. Do you remember those euphoric reunions? It was a place built by brief interludes that always left us with endless appetites. It provoked us to walk on airy surfaces, and the sounds that caressed our shapes yielded a season in which for us to harmonize. 

The newness of it all aroused a liberation in me. I felt revived like my spirit had been in a slumber waiting to be awakened by you. I had a desire for all the parts I couldn’t possess and an unsettling understanding that I wouldn’t know what was next until it occurred. How arresting it was to be seen by you. 

Now that we are here and our space in the clouds has materialized as something more concrete. I ask that we don’t get sidetracked by all the trappings that our relationship provokes. Let us rhythmically outdistance all that does not serve our dreams. Let's free ourselves in order to live here in this place
right now   
some more    
or lest we forget our passage and make camp in a place we never intended. 

With love, 
Your devoted performer" (Promo Copy)
