Description

Using eBay, Craigslist, and a performance specific website all elements of the performance ARE UP FOR SALE. The creators will offer “for sale” space within the performance to both individuals and groups which can be used for any purpose the purchaser desires. This may include statements of the purchaser’s opinions, jokes that tickle the purchaser’s fancy, pre-existing texts of his or her choosing, or stories or anecdotes from the purchaser’s life. In addition to the spoken material, the physical or non-verbal actions and all elements of the design will be available for sale. One might choose a particular image to be shown onstage, a costume for one of the performers, a sound cue to be played, or a gesture or sequence of movement. We will also offer product placement or other advertising opportunities to corporations, small businesses and groups

Democracy in America makes literal the so-called “market-place of ideas,” in which those with means purchase access to the privately-owned technologies of opinion-making and information dissemination, and those without money are the passive receivers of views which supposedly represent them.
