4pm: CyberTank Variety Show By The Tank, hosted by Hannah Erdheim

4pm: Artists Centering Access By Creative Capital In this conversation, a group of artists, event programmers, and designers will talk about what it means to center access in creative encounters both in-person and online. The panel will explore how disability intersects with user experience and design, and the larger role that access plays in movements towards social justice. This event will be moderated by Josh Halstead and Jarah Moesch of the Critical Design Lab, a multi-disciplinary and multi-institution collaborative drawing on the methods of critical and interrogative design, intersectional feminist design theory, and crip technoscience to address thorny questions about accessibility. They will be joined by Sina Bahram, founder of Prime Access Consulting, and Camisha L. Jones, poet and managing director of Split This Rock.

7pm: The Tank: Fast & Furious Each month, a group of artists comes together to create performance pieces in the 7 days leading up to the event in response to the headlines of the week. The work tends to be made very quickly and, in many cases, very furiously!

7:15: Piano Bar Live! This week Michael Orland, the Bleam Sisters, Ashley Argota, Dan Bauer, Hadiza Dockeray, Robin Lyon, Julie Sheppard, Nancy Timpanaro-Hogan and Peter Allen Vogt.

7:30pm: Offenbach’s Les Contes d’Hoffmann A triptych of operatic vignettes based on the stories of E. T. A. Hoffmann, Offenbach’s late masterpiece about a poet’s three great loves may seem a light, frilly fantasia on its surface (it was a hit at the Parisian Opéra-Comique when it premiered in 1881), but reveals hidden depths as the night wears on. A ravishing trio of singers portray Hoffmann’s beloveds—animatronic doll, diva, courtesan—with each showcasing alluringly different shades of the soprano voice.
