To clarify: Ivette Deltoro read “Cardio Tai Chi” by Sarah Lyn Rogers at our Best of Mashup show at Anne & Mark’s Art Party on September 24. Watch the footage now to experience the Spoken Word Lounge with us:
Thanks to Sarah Lyn Rogers for sharing her story with us once more, and to Ivette for performing with us! If you’re interested in participating in future shows, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have you heard of the Santa Clara County gem that is Anne & Mark’s Art Party? We here at Play On Words had the chance to check it out in 2014 and were blown away by what we found. Want to get inspired? Here are five reasons you should go to the Art Party this year:
Amazing visual art. The Art Party fills the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds with gallery after gallery of visual art–paintings, sculpture, performance art and more.
Badass live music. We’re talking jazz, blues, opera, folk, rock, classical, and world music. Can’t go wrong.
Fire. The Art Party creates its own Playa, a la Burning Man, featuring fire spinners, master welders, and all kinds of bright and vibrant pieces.
Food. Bounce from food truck to truck! You won’t go hungry. Did we mention that there’s a great bar too?
Spoken word. Check out the Spoken Word Lounge to see Silicon Valley writers read works of flash fiction during the fabulous Flash Fiction Forum–then stick around for Play On Words’ Best Of Mashup at 8pm!
