Southern Exposure is pleased to announce a newly commissioned public project through its SoEx Off-Site Graue Award, featuring work from internationally recognized artist Liz Magic Laser. The Living Newspaper: Extra Extra is her first West Coast performance project. Over the course of five days, Laser and her collaborators, actors Audrey Crabtree and Michael Wiener, will stage public performances and man-on-the-street interviews inspired by the daily news in and around a Market Street newspaper kiosk in downtown San Francisco.

In addition to morning and evening street performances, the public is invited to participate in workshops led by Laser, Crabtree and Wiener, in which participants will discuss and recreate headline stories and images at Southern Exposure, August 7 – 11, 2013, 1 – 3 pm. Register to participate in the workshops via Eventbrite at http://www.eventbrite.com/org/994232247.

Laser's The Living Newspaper: Extra Extra is part of an ongoing project to performatively address the relationship between the news media and the public. By re-enacting news stories, she invites the audience to evaluate their consumption of current events.
