Performance Art: Listening Circle | The Beacon Atlanta | Saturday, 23. February 2019
Join artist Hope Hilton for a participatory performance of Listening Circle.
For the duration of Listening Circle (2 hours) we pass a ball of yarn through the center of the circle we’ve created with our bodies. The person holding the ball of yarn is the only speaker, and is encouraged to share an experience or thought based on the beginning prompt that asks about the feminist experience. In this action we ground ourselves together in the art of listening to others. There are no interruptions. There is also no pressure or expectation to speak.
Listening is a sacred form, it demands more of us than we may be accustomed to, and it’s important.
