No Exit’s Year of Surreality: Breaking the World at Heights Arts


Thursday, May 23rd, 2024


Heights Arts
2175 Lee Road, Cleveland Heights, OH 44118





The final series of No Exit's Surreality programs, Breaking the World, will employ the ideology, concepts and goals of the Surrealists to embrace the unexpected, the illogical, and the unconventional to create and perform works that endeavor to break the constraints of the ‘rational’ and ordered world with its social conventions, imposed values and norms and in its place present a provocative alternate conception of how we can experience the world around us and within us.

Featured on this program will be a new works by composer and pianist Jerome Begin, vocalist and performance artist Lauren Pearl, composer and experimental harpist Stephen Haluska, composer and filmmaker-pianist James Praznik, and an alternate ensemble rendition of Marcel Duchamp’s Erratum Musical.

In conjunction with Breaking the World, artists at the Praxis Fiber Workshop are presenting Un Endroit Surréaliste (A Textile Dreamscape). This immersive, tactile environment has been created using fabric and textile materials that were fabricated in Praxis’ studio. The installation will be open to the public starting on May 3 and will run through May 26.

As always, all No Exit’s events are free and open to the public, but RSVPs are requested. Adventurous minds are welcome!
