GYST DO IT! With the Museum of Broken Relationships

GYST DO IT! With the Museum of Broken Relationships

Guest is Alex Hyde, Director of The Museum of Broken Relationships. 

The Museum of Broken Relationships grew from a traveling exhibition revolving around the concept of failed relationships and their ruins. Unlike 'destructive' self-help instructions for recovery from failed loves, the Museum offers a chance to overcome an emotional collapse through creation: by contribution to the Museum's collection. Conceptualized in Croatia in 2010, the Museum has since toured internationally in 20 cities so far, amassing an amazing collection.

The Los Angeles location on Hollywood Boulevard was openend in May of 2016 by John B. Quinn. 

The Museum of Broken Relationships puts the stories of real people on display with an item related to their failed relationships. These personal stories reflect the entire spectrum of break-ups, from the devilishly funny to the traumatic tales of lost love. The collection shows how we all share the same problems, no matter our nationality or background.

GYST DO IT! With Nevermore Metro Immersive Arts Festival

Our guest is Brian Sonia-Wallace, the artistic director and co-producer of the NEVERMORE METRO Immersive Arts Festival, an all-day event on Oct 29, 2016 exploring the East San Fernando Valley along METRO’s Orange Line. Through the Festival, registered audience members travel on METRO, either as a guided tour or a choose-your-own-adventure, to literary performance spaces throughout the day. 30 of LA's best diverse voices, including Los Angeles Poet Laureate Luis J. Rodriguez, will participate.

In the world of NEVERMORE, special sites off the Orange Line are transformed by poets and the escaped works of Edgar Allan Poe, which have mingled with local legends and Mexican folklore. It is up to the audience to lay these poems to rest and release Poe’s spirit.

NEVERMORE is a project of Theatre Magnet, a subsidiary of Artist Magnet, and RENT Poet, in partnership with the Eclectic Company Theatre.
