The Adjacent Possible: an evolving communal orchestra
Hosted by Grand Central Art Center
Currently through May 2020
Grand Central Art Center is excited to be hosting a FREE limited series of performances of The Adjacent Possible.
The Adjacent Possible is a live, online theater experience that mixes storytelling, improvisational performance, and technology to transform the audience into an orchestra. The experience culminates in the performance of a piece of music that is published – the first and last ever to take place. No musical experience is required. The Adjacent Possible does not use participants’ microphone or camera – making it a safe and renewing experience for anyone.
The Adjacent Possible, a term adapted from theoretical biologist Stuart Kaufman, uses music making as a vehicle to explore the nature of togetherness, desire, and possibility.
First delivered as a physical performance by artist Joshua-Michele Ross before the pandemic, The Adjacent Possible has been reimagined as an immersive, virtual experience through an exquisite collaboration with Adam Brick and Adam Lucas.
Each performance is limited to 20 participants.
