There’s a soundtrack to our lives and now with the beauty of the little pod-robot, we can listen to it in real time. June’s VAMP features stories told around the songs that are immortally bound to a specific period in our lives, motivating the make-outs, or  listened to on repeat to help us get through them.

Featuring:

Righteous Exploits

by Ryan Bradford

Righteous Exploits is a full-length, multi-media sound, projection, and narrative performance created by Margaret Noble and Justin Hudnall. Originally intended as a chronicle of the life of Noble’s grandmother, 1940′s-era labor activist Helen Hosmer and her persecution by Joseph McCarthy, the investigation led to the discovery of an uncanny cycle of behavior shared by the women of her family to prosper at the expense of their children, for four consecutive generations with unnerving specificity, each rebelling against but ultimately imitating the former. With sound and visual art by Noble and story by Hudnall, the audience is taken through a darkly funny and poignant demonstration of eternal recurrence. Directed by Lisa Berger.

Special one night only engagement as part of SDMA’s Summer Break Salon Series.

Run time: 1 hour.

In this VAMP we confess to our sins of doing it for the money, betraying our principals, becoming the things we once despised and more.

Long Story Short: “Bad Advice”

longstoryshort(1)

Join us for So Say We All’s open-to-everyone storytelling show. We invite you to come and tell a 5-minute story without notes on a changing monthly theme. Doors open at 7, storytelling begins at 7:30.

This month: we’re talking about all the bad advice we were given that we either had to unlearn or were thankful we didn’t listen to. Or, if you were the advice giver, tell us about when you realized you were full of it. Any other interpretation on the theme is welcome, just get your butts in the chairs!

Under the guise of academia, So Say We All brings it’s multimedia storytelling showcase to the students and faculty of City College. A range of writers as eclectic as the campus itself comes together to tell tales of what they’ve learned the hard way, outside the classroom’s confines. All are invited to celebrate these nine emerging voices as part of the week long festivities surrounding City College’s Book Fair!
