Please Don't Hate Me is a series of transdisciplinary performances and events conceived by dance theater artist Octavio Campos and Camposition. Inspired by the hate that rips at the fabric of homes, communities and the world, each performance will point to exquisitely artistic, yet provocative, solutions - expressed by a mash up of Miami-centric dance theater productions and site-specific performance installations.
The intent of PDHM is for its resulting artworks to promote unity in South Florida by transforming INTOLERANCE into ACCEPTANCE and to challenge EVERYBODY to find the ACTIONIST within themselves to create a catalyst for social change.
This Project is dedicated to Switchboard of Miami, whose work inspired its creation.
The PLEASE DON'T HATE ME campaign is looking to involve 108 Yogis for its Saturday, November 5, 2011, Midnight Sleepless Night INTENTION INTERVENTION performance. We will be moving together with intention, through asanas (postures) to address the themes of bullying, transformation and acceptance.
a person who takes action to bring about social change (particularly in the face of hatred, intolerance, discrimination, or other extreme situations) to favorably impact those affected and to create a more promising future. While others stood by, the actionist intervened to protect the bullied child.
