The Bardo Gap

The following text is taken from Front Magazine, vol. VI, no. 1, p. 24, September/October 1994:

Margaret Dragu harvests Video, Dance, Music & Sound from her esoteric investigations into Death,

Physical death,

Death of primary industries,

Death of the middle class,

and, of course, le p’tit mort….

and presents an autumnal performance evening that can really fill the gap. Remember, you can’t take it with you, so you might as well spend it on the BARDO GAP, September 30th, 1994, 9 PM, at the Western Front. Be there or be square.

GAP: HOLE*INTERRUPTION*HIATUS*LACUNA*
Distance or Difference between Ideas or Natures.

BARDO GAP is a Buddhist term that describes the interval of suspension after we die– but also refers to the suspension in our living situations as well; a feeling of uncertainty, paranoia, or suspense. (see– “The Tibetan Book of the Dead (the Great Liberation through Hearing in the Bardo)”, Francesca Freemantle & Chogyam Trungpa, Shambala Publ., 1975.)

The BARDO GAP is not a tee-shirt.
