What makes a gift a gift?

Between March and May of 2016 I interviewed  Adolfo Perez, Allan Rosteing, Joseph J. Medina, LouisNeli, Rachel Oddman, Jenny Rodriguez, Geraldine O’Kelly, and Mario Repollet at The Carter Burden Leonard Covello Senior Center, in Harlem, NYC.

Their stories are part of both a live performance and a film I’m calling Giveness. You can watch some sections of it below.

Thanks to the Covello Center staff, especially Sonia Diaz. Thanks to Jeffrey Klein, Nancy Fleminger, Alex Randup, Conrad Kluck, and Nellie Perrera. Thanks to all of my Object Movement Festival colleagues for their support, suggestions, and encouragement.
