Our Grief is Not a Cry for War

Performance, (Times Square, New York), 2001, duration 1hr

Our Grief Is Not A Cry For War is a performance conceived of by a grouping of artists drawn together by the events of September 11th, 2001. I was part of this gathering of artists and came up with the text and helped shape the performance. It was first performed September 22, 2001 at Union Square in New York and twice in the following weeks at Times Square. More than 100 artists stood silently and motionless for an hour at each performance. Some “audience” members joined us during the piece.
