Glandular, Indeed! Commonwealth & Council Gallery, Los Angeles, October 1,8,15, 2015
Every Thursday during the run of Apprentice Crone’s Hearing Trumpet, I presented Glandular, Indeed, a Poet’s Theatre* series. Using my own exhibition as the set, a carefully cast and intergenerational group of Los Angeles-based writers, artists, historians, children, (and even film producer Julie Corman!) read monologues and particularly hilarious scenes from The Hearing Trumpet.

* Poet’s Theatre - a community-based, performative literary practice; plays are staged on-the-fly, with minimal props, costumes and other traditional theatrical elements; read with scripts in hand; usually cast from a creative community and presented informally. Per poet and critic David Buuck, poets theatre “seeks through a rigorous amateurism to explore different models of group process, communication, and collaboration, if not to inject such models with a radical social agenda or message.”
