Arts Commission presents poetic Vis-à-Vis Society, Oct. 24

 

October 11, 2012



The Snohomish County Arts Commission will present the Vis-à-Vis Society in a free presentation 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 24, at the Everett Music Hall, 1402 S.E. Everett Mall Way.

Gathering data from audiences using original poem-surveys, the Vis-à-Vis Society presents its findings in humorous and informative multimedia performances, which include song, dance and live graphs.

The Vis-à-Vis Society features Drs. Ink and Owning (aka Sierra Nelson and Rachel Kessler, of the literary performance group The Typing Explosion). Using a core practice of interactive performances by gathering data from live audiences, the Vis-à-Vis Society tenderly takes the poetic pulse of every audience it meets to create a live, participatory poetry experience that cannot be duplicated.

The Snohomish County Arts Commission cultivates and enhances a vibrant community of artists and arts organizations by connecting citizens with a range of cultural opportunities to celebrate, appreciate and participate in the diverse arts and culture of the county. The 14-member board makes recommendations to the County Executive and County Council on policy, programming and public art.
