The Living Room is a lively, quarterly program hosted by guest artists. In this variety show iteration, James Jackson, Jr. curates an evening with artists who are thinking about the questions: How many pieces does it take to make a self? Can I do it alone? Do these heels make my art look fat?
This hysterical evening brings together a genre-bending, box-deconstructing group of performers to explore variations on these and other themes through dance, song, and story. Performances by Adam Enright, Michael R. Jackson, Raja Feather Kelly, Molly Pope, and Elliot Roth. The evening includes one fifteen-minute intermission.
