Dear Masato, all at once (the play) responds to an exhibition of contemporary art works in both logical and absurd ways, riffing-off pop culture and drawn from verbatim conversations about sex, politics, religion, place and people.

How does a painting speak? What does a sculpture say? What the @#$! has that got to do with anything? Who’s afraid of the Avant Garde? Who cares anyway?

The actors chosen will generate, develop and write the last act of a short six act multi-linear performance that will be performed at West Space Gallery (and possibly other public venues) in early November 2016.
