Karinne Keithley Syers: A Tunnel Year at A.P.E

WHERE: A.P.E. Ltd. Gallery126 Main Street. Northampton, MA
WHEN: May 3-10th
Performance on May 5 at 5 & 8 pm $10
Gallery hours for A Tunnel Year: Monday – Sunday, 12-5, Friday 12-8. 

A Tunnel Year is a three-part book with a play at its center, built from a few years’ worth of interrupted thoughts crammed into one-line scenes voiced by animals. Germinated in the Bardo of parenthood and compelled to work in the form of the fragment, it asks: Did I escape? Or am I lost? A Tunnel Year will be installed as a walk-though comic book, and also performed as a live radio play with a cast of five actors from the 2016 New York production at The Chocolate Factory Theater.

Karinne Keithley Syers is a writer, performer, and book maker now based in Northampton after 20 years in the downtown New York experimental communities bridging dance, theater and poetry. Her installation/chamber opera, Montgomery Park, or Opulence, won a 2011 New York Dance and Performance "BESSIE" Award for Outstanding Production.
