"First you face to the left;
Give a kick to the right;
Clap your hands, jump and spin
At the speed of light
Then when you face yourself
You will both flip your wig!
Let's dance the Hyperspace Jig!
Let's dance the Hyperspace Jig!"
Every Friday night at the Miranda Maris Institute for Wayward Artists, five hundred assorted artists and creative types kick off a weekend-long celebration by singing and dancing the Hyperspace Jig. Originally from a pre-Millennial musical show, the song now has over a hundred verses and takes an hour to finish. The complete version is done only once a year, in celebration of Miranda Maris' birthday.
