Is the human body central to networking, communicating, and intimacy? How much does proximity matter when it comes to sharing? The Long Table is an experimental public forum originally developed by performance artist Lois Weaver. The Long Table experiments with participation and public engagement by re-appropriating a dinner table atmosphere as a public forum, and encouraging informal conversations on serious topics. It is literally a very long table set up with chairs and refreshments where anyone and everyone is welcome to come to the table, ask questions, make statements, leave comments, or simply sit, listen and watch. Event is free and open to the public. Reservations are encouraged and can be made on-line. Event will be followed by a performance of Polvo (Octopus) at 8pm.
