      In These Boxes
      Dudley Saunders' IN THESE BOXES is an uncommon - and uncanny - mix of live music, narratives and video art that explores the human need to keep the dead from disappearing by holding on to their things.  Performance, one night only, Saturday February 8, 2014 at 8pm.  Tickets $8 pre sale
      $10 at the door

      Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock present a One Night Performance of Dudley Saunders’ IN THESE BOXES taking place in a historic Carnegie Library building which is the home of  Center for the Arts Eagle Rock  located at  2225 Colorado Blvd Los Angeles CA 90041 on  Saturday, February 8, 2014 from 8p.m.-9:30p.m.
      Because most of us have had some version of this experience, Dudley has created a unique online/community component to the piece.  For the Eagle Rock performance, Dudley, CFAER and local partners are asking community residents to take photos of the objects they have inherited and can’t let go, and then post them to Instagram with the hash-tag #InTheseBoxes.  These personal contributions will then be incorporated into the final video art piece in the CFAER show; additionally, they will live in perpetuity online at www.InTheseBoxes.com, in what he calls “a social media cemetery”.  In these two ways, these emotional objects can become part of a living piece of art, rather than simply moldering alone in people's closets.
      Dudley Saunders' IN THESE BOXES is an uncommon - and uncanny - mix of live music, narratives and video art that explores the human need to keep the dead from disappearing by holding on to their things.  In the piece, Dudley takes 12 objects left behind by the dead and weaves each of them into a video hallucination of the missing life.  As he sings their stories at the front of stage, the world of the vanished comes to life on the screen behind him.
      Dudley's songs won the Out Music Award for Best Album and his last solo performance piece was named "Best Musical" by New York Press.
