but what you want is far away

An innovative performance of dance and poetry but what you want is far away explored the complexity of California as a symbol of abundance and freedom. The November 7, 2014 performance at the Oakland Museum of California cast a critical eye on the relationship between the psychedelic experience, the pursuit of transformation, and the way we imagine California. The performance existed alongside the exhibition Fertile Ground: Art and Community in California.
