I perform “Agenda Art”. Agenda Art performances are aimed at getting people to explore and wrestle with some of the unrecognized but important ideas and concepts that govern their lives in a dynamic, interactive and entertaining way.

Each presentation is modular. Each basic module is about five to seven minutes long. It consists of an introduction and a short animation or film, followed by interaction with the audience about the the topic just presented.

I start each module with a short monologue or poem introducing an idea or concept to orient the audience to each animation about a particular idea or concept. Then the audience experiences the animation. At the conclusion of each module the audience is given an opportunity to comment or ask questions, and in that process, the audience is engaged in a conversation about the ideas. Then the next module is introduced.

The performance very interactive and quite flexible. The modules are chosen based on the audience composition and total length of the performance. I plan the show to last for about an hour but because of the inherent flexibility and modularity, I can design a memorable performance for 15-90 minutes. [+]
