“A fun, live atmosphere that one only experiences through theater. I commend AVLT for taking a risk and creating something different. They took a chance and for that I recommend all to see the show.”
– Lisa Much, Columbus Underground
If there was a rule about music in place, John Cage found a way to break or at least tease it, posing fundamental questions about the relationships between art and “real life.”
AVLT celebrates the 101st year of the Cage era with a theatrical mixtape – just think of it as 38 Short Plays About John Cage – reflecting the renegade life and controversial ideas of the 20th century’s most influential experimental composer.
JOHN CAGE is tweeting! Get ready for the show – follow @JohnCage101 to get daily wisdom from the late Mr. Cage.
