Our own Christopher Vandegrift is participating in Philadelphia à la Pataphysique, a festival and academic conference being held this week at Penn. The festival is exploring the life, works, and influence of French modernist Alfred Jarry.
Christopher is performing as part of the festival’s Pataphysical Arts Night, an event being held tonight (3/20) at the Kelly Writers House. Here’s what Christopher had to say about the event:
I’m thrilled to be taking part in Pataphysical Arts Night! I’ll be screening two of my short films alongside a fantastic lineup: DJ Spooky, Andrew Hugill, Craig Dworkin, Judith Goldman, and Michelle Taransky! Hosted and emceed by Katie L Price!
The event begins tonight at 6pm and is free, but a full house is expected. RSVP details are at the event’s webpage. The event will also be live-streamed through the Kelly Writers House website (http://writing.upenn.edu/wh/multimedia/tv/) and later archived at PennSound.
