The Generositree is constantly evolving out of reflections on the nature of giving, and the connections it makes. What does it mean to be generous – and is generosity always conscious? Is our ability to be generous affected by our capacity for gratitude? This interactive work of performance art explores the notion that anything can be received as a gift. Members of the public are invited into the a space of improvisation, play and risk taking. They are offered a gift, and are invited to make an offering (literally anything – a string, an orange peel, a song!).
Most recently, the Generositree has featured as Here we go round the Syzygium Jambos, where it stimulated people’s engagement with purposeless, playful activity within the setting of Odrathek festival.
