Several organizations are trying to promote the arts in Peekskill. Among them is a group called Embark/Peekskill. When they invited me to present a street performance, I jumped at the chance. During a new event called Summer Block Party, I presented a performance that involved stuffed socks and my own interpretation of a board game called Last Word. Winners of the game were allowed to take home their favorite pair of stuffed socks! I had a steady stream of participants, and our conversations revolved around many topics, including my philosophy of one-on-one, face-to-face interactive performance art as an anti-dote to email, texting, social networking, etc!
