For our final performance, we had the class do the pledge we did ourselves the night before for our own groups performance (see below); only this time with the whole studio research class. We stood up and held our flags instead of putting them on the wall, and Sofiya lead a call and repeat pledge to Terra Cotta Coffee House, mimicking the United States own pledge of allegiance in an ironic way.

Group performance in space:

We each stood, hands on our breast, and were led in a pledge by Sofiya to the space, Terra Cotta. We wanted it to be comical and ironic, mimicking the United States own pledge of allegiance, just manipulating ours in a way that almost degrades the U.S.’s own pledge.
