In a limbo of anticipation, we prepare like it’s possible to feel prepared.
We are all intention and no delivery.
We are performance with an identity crisis.
We are afraid of being caught with nothing to show.
We are promo for the most fantastic virtuosic stuff you wont see.
We eat pressure, practice too much, and attempt to re-create the magic from last time.
It was so good last time.

meet/meant/mtng/mning considers how we can say just enough, and where/when/how we come together and understand, or not. It is a series of interpretations of utterances, cues, and misappropriations. We will observe the language of making, surrender to horrible descriptive summaries, and never really know what we’re saying except for how we’re saying it. We will engage in pulsion, neotypisms, silent and invisible P’s, and be joyously thankful our bodies can do stuff too. There will be andd audio guide of sorts.
