PLU Open Mic featuring Break a Leg

Posted on 27 Jun 2016 in PLU Open Mic |

What fun, what laughs, what joy was had last Thursday, as we hosted readers, singers, musicians and, of course, our featured performers Break a Leg! Emily and René did some stage stealing/warming before inviting the talented troupe onstage for their three sketches. Henri and Carey started by trying to reignite the old flames despite distractions… Then – quick, get the kids out – we learned how internet dating can go horribly wrong with Damian and Julie…yikes… and (how crushingly ironic this one seems now) Nick and Damian finished with a good old British moan about “Some People”. Break over, Brexit as yet not even a wave on the horizon, our euphoria was catching. Jason jumped on bus 26 and was suddenly illuminated by love and the tinkling of goat bells in Brittany. Moe was picking at his bones, and...

In Response: Intangible

Posted on 21 May 2015 in |

[Traduction française en bas.] In response to the work exhibited within the gallery, G. Louise Cooper and Zorro Maplestone offer an artistic dialogue with the works of Swedish conceptual artist, Sarah Yasdani. Focusing on Yasdani’s Depression Pushes Heart to the Side, Lou offers her own commentary on the objective and subjective elements of depression. Her performance is a process of analyzing depression, and of exploring the ways that one can find form in something frustratingly evasive. In response to Yasdani’s The Wait for What Will Become Everything, Zorro installs himself in the space, immersed in the state of waiting. He explores all of the mundane actions in which waiting manifests itself, demonstrating how the invasive tension of time withheld can slowly engulf a space. BIO: G. Louise Cooper is a graduate of Oakland University’s School of Music, Theatre &...
