BIG NEWS: You can download or stream our live show "The Invisible Made Visible" directly from our site for five bucks!
This is the show we did on stage in May and beamed into hundreds of movie theaters around the US, Australia and Canada. If you missed it, you're in luck. Or maybe you saw it and want to see it again. Or show it to a friend. Or perhaps you just have extra space on your hard drive that you've really been wanting to fill. Maybe you don't care at all! In any case, the show can be yours!
It features all sorts of things that are way to visual to be on the radio: dance, animation, illustration, an interactive musical performance, photographs, a short film, and David Sedaris in clown makeup. Along with Sedaris, there are stories by the now-famous Tig Notaro, Glynn Washington, Ryan Knighton and David Rakoff. Lots of the stories are funny. David Rakoff's is particularly touching. He talks about the abilities he’s lost during his fight with cancer, and then, gracefully, beautifully, does a solo dance onstage. It was the last story Rakoff ever wrote for the radio show. He died three months later, in August. A bit of his dance is included in the trailer above.
OK Go provides music. Monica Bill Barnes & Company dance. Ira Glass tells a story using things he normally can't: photos. Mike Birbiglia casts Terry Gross in a surprising, hilarious little movie.
We're incredibly proud of this show and excited that more people can see it for just a few dollars. It's also available on DVD, for all you object fetishists and gift givers. Though you can actually gift the download, too.
