(free and open to the public)

Chicago’s Kenning Editions has just published the very first collection of Kevin Killian's plays—Stage Fright: Plays from San Francisco Poets Theater. We celebrate this collective achievement by inviting Killian to mount a new, and in his words “half-assed" production of one of his most perfect plays, Box of Rain (2012). It’s the old story of a San Francisco art gallery at a crossroads, with plenty of tears, chuckles, reversals and a fax machine connected directly to hell. Join us for an all-star cast performance. 

Call + Response is an open invitation to cultural producers in fields of design, architecture, humanities, civic affairs, urban planning, and more who want to connect with Curatorial Research Bureau to insert their ideas into the public realm for dialogue. The format speaks to a long history of democratic participation, projecting thoughts and ideas in public gatherings where speaking and listening—call and response—are equally valued as essential parts of public discourse.
