Object Karaoke is a new performance inspired by nine objects fabricated by local makers for Artists Rep's 2016-17 season. In the studio we got acquainted with three hats, a drape, three hand-dyed fabrics, a dress, and a piano harp -- learning their swan songs and backstories and finding ways to bring out their fiercest thing-power. Humans and non-humans alike are invited to gather and witness this experiment in the magic of objects and their creative reuse.
