NYC's The Kitchen, will host a series of six public talks with some of the most prolific innovators of theatre as part of their Summer Institute, "Telling Tales, Mixing Media."

June 29 - John Kelly "Chronicles of a Performance Artist"
July 6 - Kate Valk "Into the Wooster Group"

The Kitchen, once the mecca of experimental theatre and performance art, has recently turned more toward dance and video installations. Performers Anderson, Eric Bogosian and Karen Finley were all staples of The Kitchen's repertory in the early 1980s.
Glass' works include "The Photographer" and the music for the Gordons' The Mysteries, And What's So Funny?. Valk and the Wooster Group have staged such productions as House/Lights and The Emperor Jones. Anderson's albums include "Big Science" and "Mr. Heartbreak."
Tickets for each event is $10, with passes available for $35 for all six talks.
