Face of Knives Productions Presents

The Emotron: A Southern bred solo performance art project propelled by raw creative emotional energy & original synthy song composures on a vintage midi Yamaha QY700 Sequencer. Tron can be seen live often in the us, lighting his junk on fire & performing magic in his Daddy's 1974 wedding suit & shit.

TIME (FL): Maximal Synthwave/Performance Art/Movement Art. An immersive and otherworldly dance floor experience. For this tour the Gainesville-based duo will be touring alongside a projection-based installation
https://timeiam.bandcamp.com/releases

Non Grata (Estonia): Non Grata is the head of travelling performance art troupe Diverse Universe
https://www.facebook.com/diverseuniverse

Around the name NON GRATA there have been different hushes and shushes for a long time. Already from the point of view of death of conventionalization of art it has embodied the horrible and unwanted disembodiment of human person, from which the meaninglessness of nowadays art, is pouring out. For those, whose world of arts starts from the point, where the art world ends, NON GRATA has been a liberator, the orphic gap in the seemingly unalterable course, which however betrays us, it is a cure from incest. The main point of the group is ethical - it is the image of primitivism, impersonality and experimental creativity. The performances of the group take place according to the logic of avoiding codes. The presentations are physical texts, whose ways of orthography and reading are kept within limits of real actions by the groupmembers. Aesthetical and provocative challenges are represented in places, where the Art World doesn't work.

Ginko / Bas Relief: Channeling the energies and spirits of dead Lovers, Ginko is the solo work of Edgar Lopez, local auteur. Masked movement art, untraceable beats. For this Set, Edgar will be sharing the stage with Montreal experimental electronic artist and delicate soundscaper Bas Relief

Then What Live Lit Open Mic ft Kimberly Van Laningham [The Bakery]

Then What Live Lit Open Mic ft Kimberly Van Laningham [The Bakery]

Then What Live Lit is back at The Bakery and will bring live literature to bakie’s kansas city!

Then What is a live literature series featuring writers of all genres with a focus on narrative. This month is our first-ever open mic, and we are looking for your original pieces relating to the theme of "resurfacing.” The connection can be as literal or as symbolic as you want; the theme is meant to inspire rather than limit. 

The list goes up at 7 and is open to all as long as you're not gonna get up there and be racist/homophobic/misogynistic/transphobic/antisemitic/otherwise show your entire ass. Please keep work to five minutes or less so we can see as many writers as possible!

We are absolutely delighted to introduce this month's feature, Kimberly Van Laningham. Kimberly Van Laningham’s first storytelling experience occurred when she was three years old as she told her family of the fictional “other family” she had before them in order to make them jealous. What started out then as a symptom of Youngest Child Syndrome later evolved into a lifetime passion for storytelling. Kimberly is a storyteller, writer, and comedian in Atlanta and she absolutely loves when opportunities allow her to showcase all three. She holds a BA in Theatre & Performance Studies and a Professional Writing minor from Kennesaw State University, where she was also an ensemble member in both the improv troupe KISS and the storytelling troupe the KSU Tellers. Kimberly continues her improv comedy training at Dad’s Garage and trains in improv and comedy writing with Second City Chicago. She plans to never stop learning and hopes one day to write for television, but for now she is thrilled for the chance to perform her self-written stories. Just imagine a television around her, a catchy theme song, and enjoy the show where she plays all the characters. If you’re kind, she might leave out the commercials.

There will be a donation jar and all proceeds will go directly to the feature.

Hosted by Maddy Fay.
