You Have to Plan for the Possibility of Yarn Not Being in a Ball

December 14, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

A collaboration between The Accidental Mechanics Group + Workshirt Opera, presented by the The Bus Stop Theatre Co-op.

Michael Lake and STEWART LEGERE react to the year through three short performances, a surprise to everyone (including the performers). YHTPFTPOYNBIAB is an experiment in connection, risk, trust, and an expression of wild abandon.

Here’s the situation:

Michael and Stewart create the performances using a set of objects and a set of rules.

The objects are: a piano, a cake, a skirt, a ladder, a bottle of wine, a hammer, five microphones, and twenty balls of yarn.

The rules are: there must be a magic trick, a dance, an explosion, a reunion, an accident, a song, fake words, and a genuine apology for a specific thing you did to a specific person.

PART ONE: Michael performs a piece by Stewart, without prior knowledge of the content.

PART TWO: Stewart performs a piece by Michael, without prior knowledge of the content.

PART THREE: Special guests perform a piece by Michael and Stewart, without prior knowledge of the content.

Tickets are PWYC in advance, or $10 at the door.
