The Vis-à-Vis Society was founded in a year that felt like 1957 by Drs. Ink and Owning (aka Sierra Nelson and Rachel Kessler, of the literary performance group The Typing Explosion). Gathering data from audiences using original poem-surveys, the Vis-à-Vis Society presents its findings in humorous and informative multi-media performances which include song, dance, and live graphs. The Vis-à- Vis Society has performed across the nation (including at the NW Film Forum, Wave Books Poetry Bus, Henry Art Gallery, Bumbershoot, Galapagos Art Space) - building installations, teaching the polka, crying into telephones, rapping equations, and tenderly taking the poetic pulse of every audience they meet. www.myspace.com/visavissociety
