Once again a scintillating array of Portland performing and media artists (see list below) rise to the challenge of creating a piece in ten days by cutting, pasting, mangling or otherwise adapting text selected from avant-garde writer/director Richard Foreman's online notebooks.

At 12:01 am on August 5, the performers are given the text plus a few simple restrictions; ten days later audiences will thrill to the amusing, shocking and enlightening results in two different programs over two nights of avant fun.

Lilly Chamberlain and Cyndy Chan are catering the event with savory, sweet, and refreshing summer treats. Beer, wine and soft drinks will be available.
