Tonight: The SONORAN STRANGE

Early last year, Weekly world central interviewed Tucson poet and performance artist Logan Phillips who was one of of five Arizona artists (three from Tucson) to receive a 2012 Artist Project Grant from the Arizona Commission on the Arts.

Logan's project is The Sonoran Strange, a multimedia theater work he's performed in different spaces and worked on diligently the past year. Tonight you can catch a full performance of his poem at the Rhythm Industry Performance Factory, 1013 S Tyndall Ave, from 8:30 to 10 pm.

Trust me, this really is beautiful work. If you can make it, get to the performance space and get ready for some Sonoran Strange.

From the event page:

What if the Catalina Mountains outside Tucson dreamed of one day jumping the border of horizon, to follow their dreams of becoming thunderheads? What if the Apaches had won? What if the saguaros were sent to boarding school in Pennsylvania? What if the snowbirds don’t come home to roost, if the tumbleweeds decide to settle down? What if sand shoots from the sprinklers? What if the water runs out?

$7 suggested donation.

Performed by Adam Cooper-Terán and Logan Dirtyverbs.
Image and sound by Adam Cooper-Terán, poetry by Logan Dirtyverbs. Barrel Cactus projection structure designed by Benjamin Hall and fabricated by Benjamin Hall and Carrie Morgan. Sound support by Ray Vaughn Ray.

Made possible in part by generous support from the Arizona Commission on the Arts, the Tucson Pima Arts Council and the Belle Foundation.
