Julie Patton & Paul Van Curen- Julie Patton is the author of Using Blue To Get Black, Notes for Some (Nominally) Awake, and A Garden Per Verse (or What Else do You Expect from Dirt?). Patton’s work has appeared in ((eco (lang)(uage(reader)), Critiphoria and nocturnes. Room for Opal, a sound/text installation that Patton created as a Green Horizons fellow at Bates College, is in Jonathan Skinner’s Listening with Patton. Patton’s performance work, featured at the Stone, Jazz Standard and noted international venues, emphasizes improvisation, collaboration and other-worldly chora-graphs. Paul Van Curen accompanies her poetry with his guitar.

Doll Hairs – Detroit experimental rock & roll band that attempts to compose improvisation, and push the edges of a melodic discordance in pop rock.

Television Faerie Tale – Singer-guitarist Anita Schmaltz (Ass, In Your Hand) laments her state on stage as she merges modern day electronic innovation with storytelling in the king’s court. Heavily influenced by Donovan, Nico and John Cale, TVFT plays as a Pre-Raphaelite painting with word and sound.

About trumbullplex

Mission statement circa 1993: We have formed the Trumbullplex; also know as the Wayne Association for Collective Housing, to create a space where we control our own lives. We are a not-for-profit project dedicated to self-sufficiency in all facets of our lives; in our housing, our work, and our energy. We support other projects that share our goals of dismantling racism, sexism, homophobia, and the oppression of poor people through activities in our theater and housing collective. We want to create a positive environment for revolutionary change in which economic and social relationships are based on mutual aid and the absence of hierarchy. Through consensus decision making and full participation in carrying out our decisions, we create the circumstances and expectations for collective empowerment. Ultimately, we strive to realize these goals through respect and constructive communication among ourselves. Theater Collective Mission Statement We partner with the Trumbullplex residents, neighbors, artists, people of conscience, and any potential allies to build a safe space for sharing art and ideas free from oppression.
