    Presented by Hypothesis at Midway Cafe

    February 15, 2011



    On Tuesday, February 15, 2011
    Johnny Blazes and Madge of Honor present:
    a night of inventive performance

    Johnny Blazes and Madge of Honor are on a roll with the post-Valentine’s Day installment of their monthly performance event, Hypothesis, on Tuesday January 18, 2011 at the Midway. Hypothesis takes an intelligent, theatrical approach to cabaret while blending highbrow art with a lowbrow aesthetic. Each month, a new group of artists present work based on a challenge posited by fellow scientists Prof. Honor and Dr. Blazes. These challenges provide an opportunity to ask questions, test new approaches, and make work that fascinates.

    Whether you’re suffering post-Valentine’s stress disorder or still basking in the glow of your perfect night of chocolate fondue and Barry White tunes, Hypothesis is sure to help you recover. To bring you back to reality, art/scient-ists will give you their interpretations of “Human vs. Machine.” Each performer will bring two pieces: one expressing something about humanity, perhaps its fallibility, emotions or anatomy. The second will address machines: anything from robots to hairdryers. After all, what greater love affair is there than between Man and Cellphone? Who or what else do we clutch so fervently so often throughout the day?

    The evening will feature: potent and joyful autobiographical storytelling from Amanda Ali, political musings from Spectra, spell-binding shadow puppetry from Woellert and Clark, as well as performances from Boston’s most innovative vaudevillians, Johnny Blazes and Madge of Honor. The presentation of findings will be followed by a dance party to the smashing sounds of Boston’s own DJ Golden Touch of Audio Chemists. Feature drinks, appropriately fluorescent and elixir-evocative, will be available at the bar for those scientists over 21.
