Performance Art is what Candace calls the Embodiment Practice. An opportunity to creatively communicate your insight, perspective, and experience of "the heart of the matter", your truths! And, also, to make inquiries of "we, the people". To do a little social research on the 'We'. What do you care about? What stories, messages and questions live in your body? What is asking to come through you? How does it want to come through? What is it that you feel We, the People, need to hear? What stories need to be told? How do they contribute to "...the wellness of the individual [you], the society and the Earth?"
"Without the Images...who am I?" November 2012 - 7 days and nights, blindfolded, fasting and living in the window of an antique artifacts shop. Performance Artist: Candace M. Younghans
