#txtshow @WPPLibrary (Fundraiser for @perfecthannah)

Presented by Brian Feldman Projects at Unknown

#txtshow @WPPLibrary (Fundraiser for @perfecthannah)

100% of donations at the door will go to Hannah Miller!

D.C.-based conceptual artist Brian Feldman returns home to present the first Florida performance in four years – and Winter Park premiere (“Oooooo!!!”) – of one of his signature projects, “txt.”

This is all in an effort to raise some quick funds for his former “protest” wife (http://orlandoweekly.com/Blogs/archives/2011/01/19/brian-feldman-marries-anybody-part-iii-the-annulment) and friend (and Winter Park resident!), amazing person Hannah Miller (@perfecthannah) – who is currently battling a serious, and seriously rare, disease called Myasthenia Gravis (http://facebook.com/groups/636905369787609).

ABOUT THE SHOW
“txt” is an interactive performance featuring a character named txt, played by Brian Feldman, who recites dialogue written anonymously by an audience in real time via Twitter.

All audience members are instructed to bring a smartphone, ideally fully-charged, and actively use it during the show’s 45 minute duration. It is not necessary to have a Twitter account in order to participate, as everyone in attendance is randomly assigned a protected and anonymous account for their use.

Based entirely upon what the audience writes in anonymity, this performance may contain mature themes, profane language and explicit sexual content. (There is no censorship whatsoever.)

“txt” premiered at the Kerouac House (@Kerouac_Project) in College Park in 2009, and has since been presented @Gibson_Orlando as part of @barcamporlando, @Atlantic_Center as part of #ACA134, The Telephone Museum @artandhistory as part of @ArtsFestUA, @UrbanReThink, @dcartscenter, @RobotoProject as part of @BunkerProjects #PAF14, @coveDC Capitol Hill and @LittleSalonDC.

Brian is currently performing “txt” @AmPoetryMuseum @ArtsWalkMSM in Washington, D.C. at 7:00 PM every Sunday in 2015.

REVIEWS
• “txt delivers all the breathless, anything-can-happen anticipation and nervous laughter of an improv show, but without any of the pressure to make a funny that makes a crappy improv troupe so agonizing to watch. Like a sex party, it was both exhilarating and exhausting, and it seemed to work best when we all synced our wavelengths. But at times, it was even more fun to just sit back and watch.”

• “Grab your smartphone and warm up those fingertips because this is your chance to share – or even better, have spoken aloud by a local notable – pretty much any random, opinionated or outlandish thought you can imagine (in fewer than 140 characters, of course).”
(Aimee Shea, Orlando Weekly – Selections)

• “Yes, you heard right! YOU make the “script!” Brian doesn’t utter a word unless it comes to him via his phone, from the audience. As I’m sure you can guess, a concept like this can lead to a very entertaining show!”

• “I found myself laughing louder than ever at this performance. The uninhibited mind is a strange and quirky beast… txt [is] a Mad Lib with an emphasis on Mad.”

• “txt held up a mirror, and in it we see the promise of instant total communications, and how it will kill us all, unexpectedly.”

• “even with the glitches #txt was awesome. best part about #barcamporlando for me.”

• “Feldman plays a character who reads other people’s text messages — while people in the audience tweet him. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, this… is not for you.”
(Elizabeth Maupin, Orlando Sentinel)
