Take Only What You Can Give is a sculpture/participatory performance during which three performers lie on a sculpture of reclaimed material. They are covered by hundreds of pounds of local clover seeds, a nitrogen fixing plant that restores soil. The audience is invited to take only what they can be responsible for cultivating while releasing the performers from the weight of the seeds.
