Performance of stories and texts about gifts.

Live art skill and performance exchange, in my case readings from The Gift by Lewis Hyde interspersed with stories about tengu (Japanese goblins) and the double-edged, conditional gifts they grant to mortals, taking place throughout one of the otherwise “useless” spaces of the kind occasionally, temporarily and conditionally gifted to artists.
