Tonight is the night…
Brief Encounters Review
October 16 & 17
@ Guilt & Co
An eclectic evening of performance collaborations.
See the line up here.
I’m performing with Barbara Adler.
Accordion. Violin. Words will be said and – gasp – sung?…I haven’t really sung a full song on stage since elementary school. So…ahem…we’ll see what happens there…
This might be the craziest performance experiment I’ve run yet. Basically, I don’t play violin, talk into mics or sing, but I’m going to attempt to do all those things tonight with Barbara, who is a pro. And, to complicate matters further, Barbara just got back from two weeks in the Czech Republic, so although the work is mapped, it has never been run in full. We are essentially going to run the piece without a collective rehearsal in front of a live audience. What were we thinking? Surprises will be in store for everyone tonight.
