Synesthesia 2009
“… strangely prophetic…” – NY Times

On September 22, 2008, a poet was asked to select and open a fortune cookie. Two weeks later, she presented her work to a painter. Two weeks after that, the painter’s work was presented to a puppetry collective. And then another artist, and then another artist… eventually, ten in all.

From February 25-28, 2009, the assembled works of all ten artists will be presented live, in-sequence, at the Wild Project in New York City’s East Village.

“Electric Pear Productions has taken the grade-school game of Telephone to a new level.” – Time Out New York

Witness the next stage in the convergence of media. Now in its third season, Synesthesia is a live, annual event which unites a select and diverse range of arts and artists for four days only. Synesthesia is an Electric Pear exclusive production, conceived by Ashlin Halfnight and Melanie Sylvan, and staged for the first time in 2007. This year’s show is directed by Brooklyn-based artists Ilana Manaster and Gregory Stuart Edwards, and offers up an evening of original film, music, painting, performance, dance, and cuisine.
