You’re Going to Die: Poetry, Prose & Everything Goes…
is an open mic event, the communal offering for us to explore the conversation of death & dying, to embrace our losses & mortality,
to grieve, bereave & honor those we’ve lost & love… while all the while making room for simply being ALIVE.
Some words from Destiny Grace on her musical offering for the evening: “Music has always been a healer in my life. It’s held me when a body couldn’t; it’s given me the power to alchemize my grief into something beautiful and way less scary or intimidating. For me, creating songs is like choosing specific emotions or memories and building them altars of remembrance that I can return to whenever I need to. Writing & playing music acts as a tool to articulate my sometimes painful emotions into something less abstract and more concrete; something not only I can find catharsis in, but when shared, can also build a bridge to others who have shared experiences.”
Sign-ups will be the night of & the list fills up quickly, so if you want to perform, you’d better get there early…
If you’re going to perform, keep it under 5 MINUTES. That’s right: 5 MINUTES. WE WILL TIME YOU. And we will hug you when we have to stop you [just to make it easier on you (or harder – depending on your propensity for intimacy)].
Poetry, prose, music, dancing, comedy, drama, happy, sad, & on & on & on… Remember: EVERYTHING GOES… so do whatever you want.
You don’t have to perform anything; the audience is as essential as the performers.
Please don’t perform anything with a setup that takes much more time than the time it takes for you to walk onstage. Honestly, plugging things in is endlessly boring. If you need to borrow an instrument, figure it out before you’re called to the stage.
IMPORTANT ::: DON’T TAKE YOURSELF SO SERIOUSLY. Come and have fun. The end. Remember. Someday, we won’t exist and neither will the English language. If you choose to take yourself seriously, then take yourself so seriously that it’s stupid. Ridiculousness is encouraged.
You’re Going to Die. No. Really. You are.
