Perurbance #2, Yogyakarta, Indonesia

In 2006 I took part in this performance art festival on Malioboro St, Yogyakarta.
My ten minute performance was called 'Bulls Eye Mudra'. The theme of the festival was education and we had to use the desks and blackboard in some way. The point of my performance was how an action of violence can just as easily become a mudra of peace. I demonstrated with gestures and on the blackboard and attempted to teach the unruly students this idea. They were so badly behaved and apathetic that in the end I had to dismiss the class at gunpoint.
