Learn and play the riotous mind-bending games that were developed by Andre Breton and his co-conspirators during the 1920's and '30's, the heyday of surrealism. Games include the Exquisite Corpse drawing game (advanced drawing skills not required!), the Dream Game (a board game where you end up creating a dream!), and many varieties of surrealist word games. The consummate master of ceremonies, Miller will not only explain and lead the games to kick off the event, but he'll also DJ - providing a surrealistic soundtrack to the evening. (Paper and drawing/writing tools will be supplied).
Says Miller, "A great virtue is that these games are not at all competitive. A person who is an experienced artist may interact with a more naive drawer to produce a brilliant composition. It's a thrill for me to see people, many who never met before they sat down together to play, collectively create something brand new."
" 'A Night of Surrealist Games' was a first for us and an overwhelming patron favorite. His knowledge of Surrealism and skill in getting strangers to play together was a smashing success!" I.C.A. Boston
"A hilarious, creative, and healthy mix of mind-bend, head-clearing and humor-refraction." 3S Artspace, Portsmouth, NH.
