Scene of the performance.
Saturday evening I participated in a 30-minute theatre event in Berlin, where my name was Liam.
“Our Broken Voice” was a project where participants registered and then downloaded a 30-minute mp3 based on their gender and on their birthdate, creating four characters who would then converge on a public space [...]
See Deliverance on the Web…
This afternoon, after work, I popped over to Prenzlauer Berg in order to see Deliverance, a performance art piece where three artists, living in 30 square meters, depend on the kindness of strangers to survive for 10 days.

June 21st is the annual music everywhere in the city party that is the Fête de la Musique – and I stopped by the Rote Beete and enjoyed the 8pm street concert featuring Mr. Pink & the Lily, with guest Kitty says blue.
The description listed the group as acoustic folk pop, Americana – I’d [...]

I’d already listened to the mp3 Experiment a month ago. It was after the first mp3 Experiment of the [...]
OK, with a title like that, you can guess that I am travelling.
It starts with a week-long trip to the States—Pittsburgh and Washington, DC, before returning to Weimar for a week. Thanksgiving week I’ll be off visiting my family in Denver.
Today I’m off to Berlin—I prefer flying from Berlin only because I know [...]
I’ve long been a fan of Improv Everywhere, a New York City based group of creative geniuses who do performance art in unlikely public spaces.
Unfortunately since I don’t live in New York City, I’ve been unable to participate in one of their events. Sometimes, however, they travel, and much to my great surprise and [...]
