ALBUM responds to archiving the self from a root query: I don’t know who will write a herstory about me, so I’m starting now to help them write good notes. Through text, dance and song, ALBUM navigates a cartographic herstory written from places out of focus, from where history neglects to look. Performance starts promptly at 1pm. Cocktails provided at 431 Fishermans Path (Yellow House). Come beach ready for the day. BOFFO to provide limited umbrellas. Picnics encouraged.
