What is RECITAL?

RECITAL is a biannual multidisciplinary variety show produced by Alyssa Noble and Chris Strauss. It is an invitation to professional working artists to create and share short works with an emphasis on joy and playfulness. Our goal is to provide artists the opportunity to revisit the pop culture, artworks, experiences, etc. that made them fall in love with their artform(s) for the first time, and to find inspiration in their earliest modes of practicing those same artforms.
