Word Caberet: Ecstatically Ekphrastically Yours!
Word Cabaret’s 5th annual performance art tour is set for Sunday, October 20. Grab a ticket for one of three tours through BWAC’s historic pre-Civil War warehouse gallery in Red Hook. Each tour makes six stops for original performances of new work by six writers, all of whom composed their monologue, scene or poem using one of the artworks as inspiration. Under the direction of Courtney Wetzel, the pieces will be performed starting at 4pm, as part of a walking tour that should last about 30-40 minutes. Writers commissioned to create these original works include Nate Dobson, David Doobinin, Cindy Hanson, Padraic Lillis, Morgan McGuire, and John Francis Istel. Spots on each tour may be reserved at EventBrite (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/ecstatically-ekphrastically-yours-tickets-73921149147)
