Speak Your Piece!

Early performance of The Telephone Piece.

featured reading at Speak Your Piece series in Baltimore, MD

There was for a few years a spoken word night at Singer’s Bar, in Baltimore. Since the start of the event, I was a regular performer during the open mic part of the evening. In July, 2010, I was the featured performer. The event is called !SPEAK YOUR PIECE!.

My performance involved a “fluxus machine”. It was made of 12 old, plastic telephones and a script involving many voices. I arranged the telephones on the table and answered the telephones randomly, reading fragments from voices, hanging up, answering others, and so on.
