MILTON: a performance and community engagement experiment by PearlDamour Nov 2019 $16 157 pages 8x8 paper/perfect bound ISBN: 978-0997866421
In 2012, Lisa D'Amour and Katie Pearl--known collectively as PearlDamour--began visiting five small American towns named Milton. From Louisiana to North Carolina to Wisconsin to Massachusetts, these several Miltons span the country like an earth-bound constellation. Over the course of the past five years, PearlDamour has developed a series of performances, each focused on (and performed in) a particular Milton while yet providing a sense of the whole constellation.
MILTON includes the full text of PearlDamour's North Carolina performance, along with photos and excerpts from the performances in Oregon and Massachusetts, and essay reflections on the process and practice of community-based art making.
