Event

Neo-Benshi
Pairs of performers will select their own 6 minute clips and create the narration live.

Neo-Benshi is the practice of producing live alternate voice-overs for movies.
The art form's acknowledged starting point is in Korea, Japan, Taiwan and other East Asian nations during the silent film era. Benshi is a Japanese word referring to the oral "interpreter" who performed a live narrative accompaniment to silent movies, in lieu of showing intertitles with dialogue, etc. In Korean the practice is known as pyƓnsa. Currently, it is finding a resurgence among experimental poets in the San Francisco Bay area and Los Angeles.

Bootown
Founded in the summer of 2007 by University of Houston graduates Emily Hynds and Julie Gomez, BooTown was from the start a collaborative effort. Other founding members included Greg Hundemer, Philip Hays and Cathy Davis. In the three years since, Greg and Julie have moved on to other cities, but the 'Town has grown into a edgy, indie theatre institution, producing a series of monthly storytimes, Benshi shows, several plays and more under the oversight of Artistic Directors Emily Hynds and Lindsay Burleson.
