November 9, 16, & 23, 2010
Conceived and curated by Kurt Gottschalk and Tamara Yadao, TXT FST is a series of multiple artist performance/workshops aimed at fostering the development of performative text works, TXT FST provides an opportunity for writer musician artists and/or writers, musicians and artists to find ways to approach the use of the written word (or non-written, or non-word) in performance.
These performances are not necessarily about poetry or song, (though we're not trying to start a debate about terms either), but they are about the notion of "text". Riffing on how we comprehend the use of speech, writing and the functionality of words in general, TXT FST aims to express the mutability of language within conundrums it may fall prey to.
