Odd Couples, February 18, 7P at the Berkshire Museum

10x10

Odd Couples

Collaborative pieces by unexpected pairings, commissioned by WordXWord. We lit the fuse. Let's see what happens.
[Free]

We love collaborations / multiple voice pieces, but they happen all too infrequently around these hills. With that in mind, we’ve invited 6 of our favorite poets to invite someone - that might make for an unexpected pairing - to collaborate in the development and performance of a new piece. Although we're calling the program Odd Couples there will be nothing odd about the results! And we know that 6x2 does not equal anything resembling the number 10 or multiples of 10 - that's just the way we roll.

We lit the fuse. Let's see what happens.

With Chloë Geffken, Stan Spencer, Curtis Elfenbein, Chris Carr, Melissa Quirk Cairns, and Lia Russell-Self.
