Image: Performers (L-R) Meida Teresa McNeal, Ligaya, and Abra Johnson seen in a live presentation of Honey Pot Performance’s project ways of knowing, November 2019. The project is collaborative and process-based, exploring concepts of mastery, expertise, and value through reciprocal acts of knowledge exchange, and stemming from the question of what is “mastery” or “expertise” and how do we display power when even our discriminate usage of these terms reveals troublesome patterns, often leaving a surplus of valuable “other” ways of knowing to the wayside? In this documentation photo, the three performers gather close together in a kind of embrace; the performers on left and right lean into the middle performer, who glances upwards with eyes closed and their arms interlocked with the other performers. They each wear garments in various shades of blue and purple, and are softly illuminated by stage lighting. Photo by Seed Lynn.
