"There is no more separation between executing the idea and the idea itself"-Marina Abramovic
The Orf project has already begun with the establishment of Mr. Packer's script and concept. The production team, aka, the "Producing the new Script" class, met with Mr. Packer via an I-Chat teleconference and a briefing by our University proctor, David Saltz.

Dr. Saltz distributed the script along with the instructions to consider more ideas for it, and how we might bring it to life. He also explained that the piece in question, "Orf's Baptism" is a part of a larger series called, "A Season in Hell," which is a multi-city collaboration between Mr. Packer and Charles Lane, the main performer.

There will also be a concurrent piece being displayed at the Athens Contemporary Art Museum, which is curated by Lizzie Zucker-Saltz. I had occasion to see the museum for the first time this weekend, for, "The Myspace Project," a media art collaboration by the artists Euni Figi and Josh Bienko.
