SE corner of TransCanada and McKenzie, Victoria, BC
the Human Body Project
is a form of non-violent protest
is a cultural antidote
is a teaching
is a healing
As a Western dissident and creator of the Human Body Project, I make an intention to show up in vulnerability--naked and unscripted--to share that deep experience with other human beings.
Authentic. Transformative. Healing.
I believe that cooperation not domination is the key to human survival, that letting go of ego is the key to cooperation, and that choosing vulnerability is the key to letting go of ego.
My work is about walking the talk and embodying the paradigm that needs to be adopted for humanity's survival. I am challenged by what is required of me but I do it anyway. I am thankful to those who join me.
How it will look:
- In keeping with the Human Body Project ethos of solidarity in human vulnerability, I will be naked
- Anyone is welcome to join me, dressed or as undressed as you would like to be
- We will hold a sign in front of our bodies that spells the word VULNERABLE
- Plus whatever else emerges
I've committed to holding at least one Human Body Project Vulnerability Vigil a month during 2012 (see the Human Body Project Facebook page for the most up to date information and photos).
Also, the Human Body Project continues this year at the Victoria Fringe, August 23-September 2.
Last year, Victoria's Monday Mag called the Human Body Project fringe show, "the most relevant and powerful work at the Fringe."
