Plays The Classics
A variety show inspired night of concrete poetry, gameshow wheel spinning and live improvisations from a specially assembled house band (the audience). The evening also served as the release of the sixth Thing-stead publication, both a text in its own right and a program of the night's events.
Topics include: The world's worst orchestra, writing in gaps and redactions, the artist-novel, tree smut, radical experiments in student led pedagogy, telling vs. retelling vs. reretelling, centenarian cruciverbalists, bad music on tape, OULIPO prompts for wedding invitations and just generally "playing the classics."
