Small Wooden Shoe is named after the tools French workers would use to "clog" the machinery when on strike. Their “sabot” – small wooden shoes – gave English the word “sabotage.”

Like them, we want to disrupt the machinery of "business as usual" in hopes for a better world. more about what we do

Populism, Affect, but mostly How?

I've been quiet here, recovering from Antigone Dead People (even successes take time to recover from), dealing with the change in daylight and working on this:Last Thursday I did a talk at the University of Waterloo (big thanks to Jay and Andy for having me out.)

I was happy with how it turned out, and (you're hearing it here first) I will be doing the full thing in Toronto at Dancemakers as part of Study Group Thursday December 13th at 6:30pm in the Michael J. Baker

Since I'm going to do some work on it before then, I won't post the whole thing from Waterloo - but here's a 12 minute of the Freemind talk, focusing on how I'm trying to work on populism and affect in my work with collaborators at Small Wooden Shoe, Public Recordings and the afore mentioned Dancemakers.

Enjoy! Thoughts welcome in the comments.
