Event description

Description

Hosted by the Bay Area’s long-running Porchlight storytelling series, Oops, I Did It Again invites storytellers to explore the magic and mystery of the things we do over and over. Whether its describing day jobs, night shifts, bad choices, or nasty habits, these stories celebrate and lament all too common sensations; stuck in a groove, won't quit, don't stop, can't fight the feeling. With live musical accompaniment by Marc Capelle.

Oops, I Did It Again is one of three events that examine the concept of performance as edition, curated by visual artist Jonn Herschend for the McEvoy Foundation for the Arts' summer exhibition What is an edition, anyway?. Encompassing literary, musical, and comedic practice, the events acknowledge performance’s implicit conundrum between poles of repetitive and unique actions. Original, limited-edition posters, designed by Herschend and THE THING Quarterly co-founder Will Rogan, are released at each event.

Immediately following the event, MFA hosts the opening reception for What is an edition, anyway? from 6–8pm.



Arline Klatte and Beth Lisick founded Porchlight in 2002 with the goal of getting people of the Bay Area onstage to tell their stories. They have produced over 250 shows with a wide variety of folks, including school bus drivers, mushroom hunters, politicians, socialites sex workers, musicians, authors, system analysts, filmmakers, and social workers. Porchlight has also produced shows in collaboration with LitQuake, SketchFest, SFFILM, the Contemporary Jewish Museum, Shakespeare & Co. in Peris, and the Storymoja Hay Festival in Nairobi. They are thrilled to be collaborating with MFA for the first time.
