In 1964 Jackson Mac Low (1922-2004),  co-founder of Fluxus and a student of John Cage, created an 'action pack' deck of note cards each displaying a typewritten instruction using one pronoun. Dancers select cards and interpret the instructions through gestures and sounds. His daughter Clarinda Mac Low brings "The Pronouns" back to life with the UCI community in an exclusive engagement.
