Eyedrum Open Improv is on the cutting edge of space time, bleeding to the First Thursday of this solstice month.
We'll once again be hosted by the Last Exit Studios at Railroad Earth - 1467 Oxford Rd. NE
The edge was once a cultural idea of advanced-ness. Something was 'edgy' was cutting, sharp, on the line between acceptability and the void of social dread and loneliness: good and cool to be close ('death-defying') but not too close ('suicidal'). The best art and music was (at least since we all became modern) supposed to be like that: an advanced (avant) guard(e) clearing the way along a front line of deeper, fuller, more nuanced perception and feeling of the unknown, the unfelt, the unthought,
a place often of absurdity and non-sense.
And then some folks said well the edge seems to have disappeared to which the reply could be: nope, it hasn't gone away: the edge (which can look awfully much like a crack, fault-line or storm front depending on how and with what tools you view it) has moved from being always in front of us to being in over very midst, inside the majority of us.
carry the center within you.
feed off the chaos.
