Event description
If something can live on the internet forever and simultaneously never be discovered, how do you remember your connection to humanity?

About this Event

The Museum of Dead Words

with your tour guide, Dyalekt

Directed by Andrew J Scoville | Curated by Kristen Crouch

If you've ever found yourself in an unexpectedly heated argument on the internet and don't know how you ended up in a dithering pile of semantics over days of your life you'll never get back, you are not alone.

MC/Playwright/Educator Dyalekt has spent a year researching internet comments to find out what words turned conversations into fights and ultimately died on the internet.

He has turned this research into a one man show/museum tour/art installation/rap album (happening all at once!) that explores how communication through the typed word is changing language rapidly, how words can lose their meaning and become weaponized, and how to find empathy and true connection with each other.

If something can live on the internet forever and simultaneously never be discovered, how do you find ways to remember your humanity and connectivity?

Join Dyalekt for a guided museum tour where we exhibit 11 words that died on the internet, mourn their passing, move forward together with more empathy and understanding.

Patrons will enter and exit through the gift shop where local artists and entrepreneurs will be sharing their art and wares and hopefully we will fund the revolution together.
