Conceived by award-winning director Annie Dorsen, Spokaoke is a participatory theatrical event that invites spectators to reenact famous speeches, as they would ordinarily perform pop songs in a karaoke bar. Using dozens of texts, from Socrates’s Apology to Sarah Palin’s resignation announcement, Spokaoke allows the participant to play with our shared legacy of spoken artifacts, treating extracts of public address like a Top 40 radio of collective discourse.
Join us for the opening on Saturday, September 21, MC’d by editor Lorin Stein. The public is invited to deliver their speech in the main bar.
