Ari Hest, Jon Morris, et al. Contribute to Electric Pear's Synesthesia 2010
Conceived by Ashlin Halfnight and Melanie Sylvan, the piece was begun in October 2009, when a composer/lyricist team was asked to select a fortune cookie. They created a musical theater piece based on the fortune. Two weeks later, they presented their work to another artist. This artist then had two weeks to create a piece based on the work shown to him (never having seen the fortune), and then presented his art to the next artist in the series.
The work of all participating artists will be presented in sequence, with the line-up including Ari Hest, Jon Morris' The Windmill Factory featuring William Nayan and Natalie Thomas, Brent Arnold, Mariana Elder & Andrew Elsesser, Thomas Doyle, Meghan Frederick with dancer Elisa Davis, Brian J. Bustos, Stone Cold Fox, Tariq Cherkaoui, The Mayhem Poets, Joel Bravo, and Adam Ramsey.
