Book Club: snowflakes in the echo chamber

Moe Angelos

 

Are you a snowflake? Do you live in an information silo? Do you live to comment? Likes, dislikes, emoji bagels and a thumbs up? Are you a lurking flamer? (Or is your crazy uncle in Alberta one?) Is this making you mad? Would you like to say something? Do you feel silenced because there is no comment function?
 
What happens when all your friends (and your “Friends”) think exactly the same as you? Can you talk to each other anymore?

 

Join us for Book Club: snowflakes in the echo chamber, one year after Queer/Play was published; one year after Ellie, Audrey, Jasmine, Stacy and Moe read it in their book club; and one long year on our journey ever deeper into the Offendocene, the epoch of being outraged.

ABOUT PERFORMANCE CLUB

As a proposition for a performance or the framework for an actual book club, Performance Club redefines the historical and contemporary performance art canon, one book club, and one book / article / essay / anthology at a time. Invited artists perform the role of book club facilitators, leading the audience through a performance of a reading, a reading performance, a performance about a book, or a bookish performance. This series is on-going. Sometimes we pick the book and invite an artist; sometimes we invite an artist and they pick a book. Just like a real book club, we ask the audience to read the suggested material before coming to the performance. But don't worry, just like a real book club, no one ever does.
