Sideshow Fringe Festval!
I have been graciously accepted into a wonderful new festival: the Sideshow Fringe Festival, Nashville's Progressive Performing Arts Event . . . An arts extravaganza connecting innovative artists with adventurous audiences!!
My project is called, Octopus Lament. Octopus Lament incorporates costuming, poetry, music composition, and performance. I wrote a poem that is being performed as spoken word on top of a beautiful piece of music composed by Jin-Hwa Choi. Megan Kelley stars as the octopus in a wonderfully whimsical and dark, eight-legged fabric get-up; with make-up by the incomparable Jackie Osborne.
The folks over at Actor's Bridge have worked super-hard to make this event possible . . . And, I would love for you all to come out and support this fantastic 4-day event!
The schedule of performances can be found here. I encourage you to take advantage of the weekend: see as many shows as possible!
Here are the particulars for Octopus Lament:
Saturday, October 1st
