Today, 1 to 15 (10 to 14 missing).

1 & 2 – I already answered these. I don’t think I have anything to add. 

I don’t know the answer to this in relation to other changes that have happened for Quarantine. Earlier I read the interview that Cristina did with you three for the book and I was struck by the image of you, Renny and Simon sat in a park in Amsterdam writing your first manifesto. I could really see the three of you sat there – or at least I could see what I imagine younger versions of you three would have been like – and I could imagine something of the energy or the freedom or the hope that you had in that moment. Do you still have the manifesto/remember what it said? I’d be curious to know how you feel about it now and how much of it happened… 

For me, in a personal way, the thing that’s different is making the decision to commit to something for a while and see what happens. I’ve never really done that before this. It’s taken me a bit of time to get my head around the invitation – i’m not usually very good at letting myself be part of things. It’s a welcome change.

The short answer is yes. 

5 & 6
Something huge and choreographic. Something with lots of bodies and not a lot of words. Maybe something with a score that can be repeated. 

I keep thinking about the rehearsal for a revolution. It feels more relevant all the time. 

Something that shifts a power structure. 

Something that can be made from bed. I’ve been thinking about how we all have different energies at the moment and how it would be interesting to have a project that has the same resource and time given to it as any other project, but that can be made from bed. 

Something that’s tiny and only involves two people, four hands, and a desk lamp. 

Sometimes that involves spending time in (a) new place(s). 

Something very theatrical. (I’m a bit worried I’ve forgotten how). 

7 & 8
Hmmm, this one is harder because it also requires a bit of imagining what the world might be like in 10 or 20 years. I’m not very good at imagining the future. That’s a real thing. It’s tied up in not being able to make a very cohesive chronology out of the past. I remember reading somewhere that to imagine the future we need to have a confident relationship with the past because ultimately we construct new things out of what we already know. 

Talking about what things should be rather than just being it and seeing what it is. 

Anything that involves unnecessary paperwork. 

Not leaving enough space between things. 

Are we asking the right questions?
What will make things easier?
What will make you happier?
What matters the most?
If █████ stopped tomorrow, what would you do instead?
In twenty years time, how will you look back on now?
