Arts & Culture, In-Residence

DavidMitsuoNixonTown Hall’s new Scholar in Residence, multidisciplinary artist and UW philosophy Professor David Mitsuo Nixon, kicks off his term by hosting a one-of-a-kind improvisational-music party—a Kunjabunja. The guiding principle behind Kunjabunja is, “Quantity is more important than quality.” And so a number of artists—including members of the music/theater/performance-art collective “Awesome” and the progressive bluegrass music/theater trio The Half Brothers— will gather at Town Hall to make and record as much art (especially music) as possible. Nixon promises it will be messy and strange—and occasionally uncomfortable. Are you game? Presented by Town Hall as part of its In Residence program, funded, in part, by The Wallace Foundation and the Washington State Arts Commission. Media sponsorship provided by The Stranger’s A&P.
Admission is free, but RSVPs are required at Town Hall members receive priority seating. Downstairs at Town Hall; enter on Seneca Street.
