Bryn Mawr College Performing Arts Series presents Spokaoke by Annie Dorsen

September 10 @ 10:00 pm - 11:00 pm

$5 – $65

This September, Bryn Mawr College Performing Arts Series will present the first career retrospective of theater artist Annie Dorsen titled Algorithmic Theater. The retrospective, supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, is part of a residency advancing Dorsen’s work and examining the consequences of digital communications through theater.
Spokaoke is a participatory event that invites people to perform speeches as they would ordinarily perform songs in a karaoke bar. Speeches are, after all, songs of persuasion, argument, consolidation, or motivation. Over 90 speech videos are loaded into a karaoke system and arranged in a catalog for audience members to peruse. Participants will read various forms of public addresses, including political speeches, award acceptance speeches, press conferences, theatrical monologues, eulogies, and trial testimony.
