What happens when we trust disorder? When we trust a moment and just make?

The News, created by Kolmel WithLove and presented by SOMArts, spotlights queer experiments, debut works and works-in-progress by pre-selected solo artists, groups and troupes. On January 8, 2013, 7:30pm to 9pm, hosting guest curator Laura Arrington facilitates Breaking News, a one-night-only radical collaboration honoring the core values behind The News: to aid in the creation of new queer work and provide a place where Bay Area performance makers can take risks and identify new collaborators.

While there will be no single culminating group performance, the audience is invited behind the scenes to watch improvisational, collaborative and in-process performances created during the event. Seating will be available, but simultaneous performances are possible and some observation may require standing.

The box office opens at 7:30pm. Performers can show up as early as 6pm.
