TONIGHT to Saturday, October 22 – The Exquisite Corpse Festival Exquisite Corpse is a game where three collaborators create a single composition through a game of secrets and consequences. Three dance companies will share the stage to dance to a song by three musicians. The dance companies will be choreographed by Rachel Klein, Jessica Park, and Tracy Berlsey and will never have worked together before the dress rehearsal. The three choreographers will fully choreograph each of their parts, but opening night will be the first time they have ever danced together! The directors will share a cast to produce a play written by three playwrights. Award winning playwrights including John Patrick Bray, Stacy Davidowitz, and Anton Dudley have each written a third of a play without seeing each others’ work. The first time they will see the entire play for the first time is with you in the audience! Three tattoo artists will share one person’s body to create a tattoo without sharing their work. Sacred Tattoo is sending three of their best tattoo artists on opening night to give our volunteer a tattoo from their imagination (rather than the receiver’s request). You have to be there opening night to see it live, but we’ll have a photo exhibition of the work by Nick Pauly for the rest of the nights! Three taxidermists share parts of three animals to create a single corpse! What do you get when you mix a duck, rook, and a rabbit? You’ll have to show up to find out!
