OPEN LITERATURE

by The Living Theatre

during the Know Your Rites Tour, August 2016

“only the people can do what is needed. only the people

can free the people.” I & Though

it still saddens my heart we do not even know

what liberation looks like, or feels like. Don’t we deserve

to experience this?

Who do we know who has come closest to

liberation?

Liberation is like a cloud, shifting shapes, appearing +

reappearing in various forms only to float away so it

can find another form to return in.

“hope exists only in the imagination. we cannot exist without

hope, therefore we cannot exist without the imagination.”

Take me there. I don’t know if I’m ready but death is the only other option. The system must

be broken down, brittle bone by brittle bone.

It must taste like fresh peach sangria tickling the spine and lizard brain. Awaken

the heart chambers. Send the elevator flying through the rooftop. Free the people.

Feed the people. Scrape money out of politics. What else? Everything. Fierce tenderness.

WE ARE THERE, HERE. IT IS IN US.

IMPROVESTION, LETTING GO FROM THE IDIA OR THOUGHT OF WHAT IS

SOPOSSED TOO.

LETTING YOUR TRUE HEART SONG OUT. SHARE IT. no dgugment or defenition.

FREEING YOUR SELF FROM YOUR SELF. THAT MOMENT OF REBIRTH. BRAKING

OUT IN SONG, DANCE

CONECTION. Freedom of expretion. not needing to be dipending on ANY OUTWARD SORS

FOR LIVING.

Growing My Own Food And Having Clean Water That Is Liberation. KNOWING YOU HAVE

THE

CHOOSE AND THE ABILITY TO CREAT YOUR OWN REALITY> WEN I SEE YOU IN ME

AND ME IN YOU

WEN WE SEE. WEN I FEEL THE EARTH UNDER MY FEET> SHARING HER WITH YOU.

TRULY. WE ARE FREE.

wen we can Fully exprese. with out Being A Victims To Awere Emotioans exeptense

And self love. only then we can love And exept each other. I LOVE YOU. I AM YOU. FLOW

TRUST

CREATION CONNECTION FEAR AND DOUBT DO NOT EXIST. WE ARE MORE

POWERFUL THEN WE

CAN EVER IMAGIN. LAUGHTER.
