Electricity is on the move. So, too, is language. The 'Lectric Collective is interested in orchestrating collisions between the language arts and other art forms, to re-establish a kinetic relationship among them, and to ignite artistic mobility through its diverse contemporary vehicles. We are devoted to process and the healthy continuation of artistic junctions.

Together, the collective has written one collaborative chapbook (One Hundred), a short play (Breadsongs), has created a variety of visual works, and curated a number of events, detailed on the PROJECTS page.

The collective was formed by Jillian Roberts, Kelsa Trom, and Sarah Rothberg in March 2010. They once resided happily together in Oakland, CA and are now scattered between San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Brooklyn.

First Reading a Success!: Beyond Stoked at Beyond Baroque.

'allo lovelies. Results are in—the first reading of our national project was quite a success. Ara Shirinyan and Vanessa Place took the stage at Beyond Baroque in Venice, Ca. Between Ara's humor and Vanessa's grip, the night was beyond comprehensible range, overfilled, and completely captivating. We hope to get back some artwork in conversation with this one.

We're in Salt Lake City now about to chat it up with Sugar House Review on this lovely afternoon. Utah is Burnt Orange and Green Green and no Crayola colors in between. We just got confirmation from Mars Gallery in west loop of downtown Chicago to host a reading there on July 21st. Featured readers include Nick Demske and Alisa Heinzman. As a special treat, Alisa will be working in collaboration with visual artist (and hubby) Jake Gillespie.

We've also updated the events page, if you'd like to see all of the fabulous things that we have lined up for this month!
