Yelling At The Dark

  • Arts + Literature Laboratory 2021 Winnebago Street Madison, WI, 53704 United States (map)

The mission statement of Yelling At The Dark is ambitious but doesn't give you a lot to grasp onto: "...celebrating the simultaneous absurdity and exhilaration of an insignificant act. The possibility of doing nothing. To explore strength in vulnerability, being our incongruous selves, recognizing our obtuse nature. Bubbling to the surface and being loud to root in embodiment." But this night of performance is all about variety and thematic complexity. It brings together Madison- and Chicago-based artists spanning (and sometimes combining) music, dance, and performance art, including Madison multimedia artist Christine Olson in a collaborative performance with experimental-music standout Louise Bock (who will also play a solo set), Chicago music/dance ensemble Trickster Quartet, and multidisciplinary Chicago artist Ginger Krebs (see a clip of Krebs' work "Buffer Overrun" at this link). Between door time (7:30 p.m.) and showtime (8 p.m.), attendees can visit the Existential Coat Check, a project in which Chicago artist Aurora Tabar invites people to "check their mental baggage in order to more fully experience their surroundings." —Scott Gordon
