For those with short attention spans, this coming Saturday night Jan. 4 may be the perfect show: I’ll be participating in the fourth annual “100 Performances for the Hole” at the fabulous SOMArts Cultural Center (the hippest, going-est art/performance space in the city, just sayin’). “100 Performances for the Hole” is exactly that: starting at 6pm, watch a variety of mad, weird, beautiful, edgy, baffling performances emanating from the mysterious casting pit concealed in the floor of the old warehouse that now houses SOMArts. Each artist gets 1 minute to set up, 2 minutes to perform, and 1 minute to clean up. NEXT! Come on the late side…I am performer #95…taking my 2 minutes around midnight!
If you are not a night owl but want to watch the proceedings anyway, you can see it streaming live on SF Commons.
In more traditional venues, I’ll be offering 10- to 15-minute excerpts of the play later in February. I’m particularly honored that veteran (and brilliant) solo performer Charlie Varon has asked me to be a kind of “opening act” for one of his upcoming performances at The Marsh, where he is debuting a new solo show, “Feisty Old Jew.” Perfect fit for the two of us. I’ll be offering my excerpt as a curtain-raiser (metaphorically… the Marsh has no curtain) for his 8pm show on Saturday Feb. 22. Click here for tickets, just make sure you are selecting that night’s show if you want the one with me as the appetizer course.
And I promise, not all of my 2014 blog entries will be relentless self-promotion. Just this one. And maybe one in February. And maybe the one....
(Happy New Year anyway!)
