A three hour purification with Linda Montano and 12 performers, MC's by Laura Kopczack. At The Reformed Church of Saugerties.
Linda Montano, of the shoe-selling Saugerties family, has been a major force in the world of performance art since the early 1970s, when she followed sculpture studies, did a stint as a nun, and completed her MFA at the University of Wisconsin in Madison with a seminal work wherein she bound herself to another person for a full year. Her work as always been about shackles and spirituality. In addition to her tangled relationship with the Catholicism in which she was raised, she has spent much time in Zen monasteries and in a variety of ashrams. Linda Montano lives in Saugerties.
