This was one of the 1,029 performances of the ancient Greek play Lysistrata staged on March 3 in protest of Bush’s war on Iraq. The two of us came up with the idea and before we knew it, an estimated 225,000 people in 59 countries and all 50 U.S. states had created the “Lysistrata Project: The First-Ever Worldwide Theatrical Act of Dissent.”
All summer we’ll be periodically posting collaborative pieces by artists we know and artists we don’t in order to inspire and PUMP YOU UP for our summer show, Strange Material !
Just a reminder, Strange Material is a show that revolves around collaboration and is open to all students and alumni of Watkins College of Art, Design, and Film. Here’s a link to the application, which contains all the details.
