chatterbird live at Modular Art Pods @ OZ Arts Nashville

It’s been a spectacular two days at Modular Art Pods at OZ Arts Nashville, with amazing pods, great performances, and huge turnouts. Tomorrow night (Thursday, June 23rd) from 6 to 9 p.m., we’re pulling out all the stops for TNT edition. During Thursday Night Things, we’ll have a greater frequency of performances and special interactions with pod builders. For example, you’ll be able to see a dancing octopus with Madeleine Hicks and Paul Kintzing; a butoh-inspired, egg-splatt-tacular performance piece by Blue Stocking; intimate moments with Andri Alexandrou, and a choose-your-own-adventure play with Sideshow Ensemble. And that’s just a tiny glimpse of all the cool things happening at MAPs TNT. Check out the full schedule below. But first, videos!

Aubrey Derryberry live at Modular Art Pods @ OZ


Rebekah Alexander

Live solo vocal pieces intertwined with theatrical monologues and chance compositions with audience interaction.

Andri Alexandrou

Human transference — be it conversation, story, or secret — in an intimate setting.

Big Guise (Alexine Rioux, Mika Agari, and Kayla Saito)

Investigators of short-term connection. Food will be shared. Records will be taken.

Aubrey Derryberry

Site-specific, improvisation-driven performance art that explores the interplay between healer/afflicted, movement /stasis, and wholeness/fragmentation.

Madeleine Hicks and Paul Kintzing

As Kintzing plays steel drum, Hicks will perform a silent play about the life and death of an aquarium-imprisoned octopus, complete with octopus costume handmade by local designer Nic Magee.

Blue Stocking (Ashley Lawless and Janelle Bonfour-Mikes)

Movement art that is a blend of physical theater, modern dance and Japanese Butoh. Eggs will be set out on the floor in the pattern of Venus’s path around the sun. The performers will walk the path 13 times, each time presenting a different story, a different viewpoint, and a different moment in time.

Sideshow Ensemble (Jessika Malone & Co.)

Progressive performance artist in the style of “choose your own adventure.”

Colleen Phelps

Classical percussion constrained by the small parameters of the pod.

Brian Siskind

Live sound made of old records and field recordings stitched into collage with beats.

MKAV (Mike Kluge Audio Visual)

Synchronization system performance; audio will trigger projections and physical light devices that correspond to the audio’s spectral and dynamic information.
