Live! at the University of Michigan and MOCAD

In “How to Get Started,” John Cage proposed a collaborative framework in which sound engineers capture and subsequently layer his extemporized monologues, which consisted of ten brief commentaries on topics of interest. This amounted to an experiment having to do with thinking out loud, in public, before a live audience.

Join us on October 28 and 30, 2016 as six performers draw upon Cage’s realization as a script in effect and add new layers to the mix: their extemporizations on ten topics of interest, in their voices.
