Come down to If I Can’t Dance Thursday 13 March at 9pm for ‘Office
Service’, an evening of drinks and literary morsels taking a
behind-the-scenes look at the characters of work, both on and off stage.
If I Can’t Dance office After Hours:
rectangular surfaces decompose and relax into multiple, small
affections called tables. Keyboards and chords become napkins,
mouse-pads become table-clothes, and servers assume limbs to facilitate a
lubricated digestion of the day left behind.
The evening is
held as the fourth Emma’s
session in which Gerry Bibby
compliments from the kitchen) an intermediate course in the development
of his new book of fiction ‘The Drumhead’.
Full table service
will be provided and visitors are encouraged to bring a passage of prose
or poems in which your favorite characters roll up their sleeves,
punch-in, log-on, take a smoke-break or otherwise dance against the
rhythms of the daily grind.
This presentation is one of several
gatherings with the artists of Edition V – Appropriation and Dedication
(2013-2014), including Snejanka Mihaylova
, Emily Roysdon
and Sara van
der Heide. For these occasions If I Can’t Dance’s Offices are dubbed Emma’s
