Malinda Ray Allen dances wearing a blindfold and earplugs in a 24-hour improvisation as part of Freedom of Information 2008 - Miguel Guiterrez's 24-hour dance action/ritual/response to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Over 30 artists across the nation are taking part by dancing for the last 24 hours of 2008 - starting at midnight tonight and ending as we ring in 2009! Each of us will be dancing continuously throughout the 24 hours while wearing blindfolds and earplugs to symbolize the confusion and displacement of war for soldiers and civilians alike.
Malinda will be representing Arkansas in the home of Arkansas State Representative Richard Carroll, the first Green Party candidate elected to state office in Arkansas history.
