CO-LAB MIXED MEDIA LIVE STORYTELLING
This will be the first in a new series co-produced by Back Fence PDX! Come be a part of this exciting new adventure!
It will be an evening of live storytelling told through mixed media. Performers will use video, PowerPoint, live music and other mic oddities to explore narratives and themes from their own lives.
Matt Sheehy (of Lost Lander) presents his solo show ABERDEEN and B. Frayn Masters (of Back Fence PDX, The Moth) presents 8-minute mixed media story performances from herself, Anis Mojgani (The 29th only. Multiple-time TEDx Speaker, TheAuthor of Three Poetry Collections), Katie Piatt (Grandma In Training, Accidental Storyteller, Seasoned Performance Artist), and Chris Williams (Broke Gravy, The Turnout) — hosted by Andrew Dickson (PICA/TBA Festival favorite, The Moth).
VIP ticket holders will not only get reserved seats (until 5 mins before showtime!), it will automatically gain them entrance to the post-show after party with cast members! Where we will celebrate the night with champagne and delightfully themed culinary treats provided by ADAM THOMPSON.
ABERDEEN is generously supported with a RACC grant.
