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.

we're not blacked out anymore, and the future is bright

Blackout over!

Get this: the day of the anti-SOPA internet blackout, we Lectrices also experienced a neighborhood blackout. For a while we considered that it might have been a fancy prank against PG&E by some occupiers or anonymous. Then we considered that even if it weren't, we should do our best to make it seem as if it were. Then, though, we found a rat in our kitchen. A real rat, not a person who would tell on us. So our plan was foiled and we spent the rest of our lives standing on chairs and searching under furniture.

Anyway: this post is also to say that we're brewing up some exciting March business. Brace yourselves, and check back frequently.
