Org: Asylum ~ featuring Jaggery, Amanda Palmer, Michael Pope, Ginger Ibex, Hello Dust & others
Friday, Sept. 30, 2011 at 8pm
Club Oberon, 2 Arrow Street, Cambridge
18+, doors: 7:30pm; show starts at 8pm | $20/$15| tickets

Curated by Singer Mali (of Jaggery), the Org is an ongoing series of performance events that features an extremely eclectic range of performers and artists in a multimedia extravaganza – music, dance, visual art, film, performance art, spoken word… In this Org, Mali and her friends explore insanity and sanctuary, in what I can promise you will be a unique, fascinating, and probably disturbing evening (but in an awareness-expanding sort of way).


“Org: Asylum includes a short film shot on location at a local abandoned state mental institution, a butoh interpretation of Vaslav Nijinsky, a body-painting storyteller sharing tales of art-making and suicide attempts, and much more.”

Featured artists include: Jaggery, Amanda Palmer, Michael Pope, Bryan Papciak, Ginger Ibex, Karen Montanaro, UnAmerika’s Sweetheart Karin Webb, Hello Dust, Sarah Jocelyn, Jennifer Hicks, and others.
