The first Short Form installment in January was a stylistically diverse night --top quality experimentation with design and chock full of moments that seemed everyone in the room was holding their breath.
Short Form's second installment is Saturday, March 1, with four new 10-minute pieces by these artists:
3 collaborators use one monologue to interpret the perfect human, an imperfect werewolf and doo-wop.
The Paper Industry:
SINE WAVE GOODBYE
In which a man (M) discovers the truth about Sir Isaac Newton, undergoes a metaphysical adolescence and becomes an existential mechanic.
Jake Hooker and Grammar School:
[WHAT WE SHOULD JUDGE WHEN WE JUDGE...]
LONELINESS, LOSS, REGRET, REDEMPTION:
FOUR (4) LECTURES ON THE RECALCITRANT HUMAN CONDITION,
VIEWED THROUGH THE PRISM OF MODERN ART AS REFRACTED THROUGH
THE AESTHETIC OF THE ANCIENTS
A solo performance/lecture with audio/visual aids on lyric Greek poetry trifurcated by personal ruminations.
The American Story Project:
WHAT I TOOK IN MY HANDS
The hope, grief and genius of Charles A. Lindbergh; Trans-Atlantic flights, American myths, a son’s death, a metronomic human heart, time travel, and phantoms collide in a rapidly modernizing world.
Curated by Peter Ksander and Brendan Regimbal
