CampFire Walk With Me
The fire walk or ‘Umu Ki’ is an ancient Polynesian ceremony which summons courage, inspires commitment and demonstrates dedication to your life’s purpose, whatever that may be.
Like a shameless shaman, or a sadomasochistic cheerleader, Stacy offers artists practical, structured tasks to write, perform, conceive, devise, collaborate and make on their hot feet. Since artists can create only by continually risking failure, their fears and anxieties have an incredible power to defer their dreams. CampFire Walk With Me is both a dead serious and camp ceremonial process that invites artists to walk steadily through the perils and anxieties of their artistic journey.
This Weekender is suitable for anyone interested in making solo performance.
