Stares And Stairs Blog Post: "Rites of Spring//Complacency"
This blog post reflects on an attempted installation at Rites of Spring, an invite-only annual dance held by the "secret" fraternities at Middlebury. It speaks to the fact that the performers were kicked off of the property/alpaca farm by the owner because of the systematic nature of unsafe, white, and male dominated spaces as profitable. It also discusses people's complicity in these systems and the way that these systems connect directly to sexual violence. Stares and Stairs posted this to their website on May 25, 2017.
