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.
