Hello those interested in Too Much 2012,
It turns out that Too Much 2012 is simply too much! Inspired by Occupy while looking for new frontiers for local queer performance we decided to try a smaller, more decentralized, public site Too Much! This was a last minute vision without the support of any grant money or organizational structure. The three of us were all too busy with other projects and obligations. Additionally we got distracted by the eviction of THEOFFCENTER from the 848 Divisadero space, and our call for proposals did not get sent far and wide enough to attract enough proposals. We recognize that we just don’t have it together to produce this event in a good way, so we have decided that the best course of action is to pull the plug. We all regret not being able to see this through, as the proposals we did receive were strong and curious.
Big thanks and special apologies to all who sent in proposals. We hope your ideas continue to find fruition elsewhere. Keep us posted.
We debate whether Too Much! is an idea worth repeating. We’re asking questions about queer’s relationship to repetition, nostalgia, funding, leadership, and institutionalization. Meanwhile we continue – individually and collectively – to imagine how to inspire, nurture, provoke and manifest future events under the influence of queer. We hope to see you there.
We hope this does not come as a total disappointment. Please let any or all of us know if you have any questions or comments.
Yours,Ernesto, Keith and Julie
