Peter J. Harris - TRANCE

TRANCE is a poetry/music suite for Peter J. Harris’ Inspiration House PoetryChoir, a capella singers and a horn section blending virtuoso soloing, ecstatic human speech and dynamic silence into seamless VoiceMusic that explores and plays with time and its pulsations, revels in the shifts and slippages between emotional states, and features new poetry by Harris (American Book Award winner), and original music by Ed Barguiarena (Cesar’s Last Fast).

Kristina Wong for Public Office

Watch her shake babies and kiss hands, shrink all the hung Chads, and give speeches that make dictators blush! An arty show about a real-life simultaneous political sideshow of a campaign, is this a commentary on the dystopian train wreck of our modern democracy or a lesson in branding over substance? A real campaign or guerilla-style performance art? The reimagining of public space or a cry for help that will have us asking: Are we living in the aftermath of multiple publicity stunts gone wrong? Are these questions that can only be answered with empty thoughts and prayers? SAD!
