PLU Open Mic with Maysan Nasser

Posted on 27 Jan 2017 in PLU Open Mic, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Open mic was a transportive experience with an amazing feature by Maysan who stunned the attendance into a wondrous silence with the most compelling poetry ever. Round one opened with Fred comic-ing away on themes of sleep, showing one’s underwear, seatbelts and penis enlargement. Jac delivered a poem with empty bottles next to beds, crying, not crying, talking to oneself. Drnb transformed the stage onto a dancefloor with his stunning bright orange led belt lighting up the place to the tune of “You love me some days but it’s not all days”. Lara A asked if everyone had Tinder but already knew the answer and explained about looking for gold. She has a dramatic mind. She takes photos of people crying. Charlie offered everyone fin-sized m&ms and used issues of the New Yorker, before delivering a poem about a...

PLU: Cultural Revolution IS Here!

Posted on 5 Jan 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Beautiful documentary by Dina Khan and Maria Cavallo on PLU! In Dina’s own words: “I would like to dedicate this movie to all the artists who work torn with doubts or fears. We have a terrific job, but sometimes to make art and share it with the public makes us vulnerable. This is, for me, the greatest sign of authenticity. I would like to see more vulnerability around me. The more we feel vulnerable in our work, the more our art has to offer to the public. It is my deepest conviction. I am delighted to finish this beautiful test of motivation and zeal thanks to my many collaborators.“ Click below to watch the entire...
